Aaron Ramsey is set to hand Wales and Arsenal a massive boost with a return to action from his injury nightmare tonight.
The midfield starlet, 19, has been pencilled in to figure for the Gunners’ reserve side against Everton at their London Colney training base.
Ramsey has been in light training after nine months out with a broken leg that threatened to end his career.
The Welshman’s career was in the balance after an X-rated tackle by Stoke City defender Ryan Shawcross broke both his fibula and tibia of his right leg back in February.
But £5million ace Ramsey is expected to take his next step on the road to recovery under the watchful eye of Arsene Wenger.
Wales captain Ashley Williams said: ‘It’s a boost for Welsh football and Aaron himself. Everyone is pleased to see him back as Aaron is a top star.
‘We have probably missed him in the last couple of games. The way he plays is quite free; he is creative and not scared of trying things.
‘He’s back ahead of schedule and he’s a cracking lad. I just hope to see him back playing for us soon.’ (Daily Mail)
News of Aaron Ramsey’s return to fitness is most welcome for fans of both Arsenal and football in general, for before his injury he appeared to be one of the brightest stars in the game.
The Welsh midfielder was injured in February 2010, but is finally on the comeback trail. He will not be in the squad against Everton – contrary to what the Daily Mail reports – but is looking sharper in training every day, and his return will be sooner rather than later. He is more likely to appear against Wolves on November 23rd.
Cesc Fabregas looked decidedly off-colour on Sunday, unusually giving the ball away 16 times, and reportedly has yet to recover fully from his hamstring problems. Aaron Ramsey looked a ready-made replacement before his injury, developing a range of passing and keen eye for goal.
He and Jack Wilshere could be a potent combination in central midfield with Alexander Song or Emmanuel Frimpong just behind them for years to come.
One can only hope that he can come back from his injury as good as he was beforehand, but can draw inspiration from Eduardo’s current fine run of form at Shakhtar Donetsk.
