Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey has revealed he is not enjoying his current role in the Gunners team, which has seen him moved out wide by manager Arsene Wenger.
The Welshman has not looked at his best since moving to the right side, though he faces a fight to keep the in-form Santi Cazorla out of the team after his superb performances in a new central role this season.
The Spanish international has been one of Arsenal’s best players this year since dropping into a deeper position, though Ramsey says that is where he feels is the most effective.
Last season it was he that stole the show for the Gunners, scoring the winning goal against Hull City in the FA Cup final to cap a great year of individual displays, but he has struggled to follow that up with continued form this term.
Speaking to The Sun, Ramsey says he has spoken to Wenger about his frustrations, saying: “Santi Cazorla is playing in my position at the moment. He is the one who plays alongside Francis Coquelin and tries to get forward.
“I’m trying to get that position back because I like to get the ball and drive the team forward.
“I’m not hiding from the fact I want to be playing in the middle. I’ve had chats with the manager about it and I showed this week what I’m capable of doing when I go into the middle.”
