Aaron Ramsey has said that Thomas Vermaelen will be a ‘big loss’ to Arsenal. The Belgian defender has not decided on his next destination but it has become clear that he will be leaving the club.
Speaking at a press conference ahead of Sunday’s community shield clash with Man City, Ramsey said: “He’s a fantastic player and a good friend of mine as well so if that does happen he’ll be a big loss to us as he’s a top player.”
Ramsey touched upon the fact that Vermaelen is leaving for more playing time: “He’s been a bit frustrated over the last year especially where he hasn’t had the minutes he’s wanted.”
