Arsenal ace Aaron Ramsey has revealed his frustration at playing on the right-wing, stating he’d much prefer a more central role.
The excellent form of Mesut Ozil and Santi Cazorla through the middle in recent weeks has seen Ramsey start the last five league games on the right side, an area he has proven to be largely ineffective in.
Arsenal fans are calling for a reshuffle after the shock 1-0 defeat to Swansea City on Monday and Ramsey could find himself out of the side.
Speaking about the position, he said he was more than happy to willing to do a job for his team-mates he still wants to play centrally on a regular basis:
“It is not my preferred position. I am a central midfielder and that’s where I like to be. I like to be involved a lot more in the game. But the manager’s asked me to do a job out there, and I do have the licence to drift in and get involved.”
“When we are defending, I have to stay in position but when we get the ball I can drift. I am not a winger, I can’t knock the ball beyond my man like Theo [Walcott] does.”
“I prefer to get in the little pockets of space, get involved and play the combinations but it is important to do a job for the team.”
