Arsene Wenger admits he understands why Aaron Ramsey is determined to regain his place in the heart of Arsenal’s midfield, but insists the Wales international can bring qualities to the side wherever he plays.
Ramsey has only just recovered from a hamstring injury which had ruled him out of action since the opening weekend of the Premier League season and started the midweek win over Ludogorets on the right-hand side of Arsenal’s attack.
After the victory, Ramsey again reiterated his desire to play in a more central role, but with competition for places in the Gunners’ engine room as intense as it’s ever been, Wenger faces a difficult challenge to satisfy the wishes of the 25-year-old.
‘I just consider the next game and try to find the balance with the players to be in a position where they can give their best for the team,’ the Frenchman said.
‘Aaron Ramsey has come back from 11 weeks injury you know, he has to come back, you do not come back by magic, It takes time but he can bring us his strengths in every single position – wide or central.
‘You know of course I speak with all of the players about their performances, about their positions. Most of the time I think you want the players to be happy and to play in their best position.’
