Aaron Ramsey says Thomas Vermaelen will be a ‘big loss’ for Arsenal [Video]
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.”
The Welsh midfield dynamo continued to speak about the defender’s qualities, including his ability to score goals. Vermaelen has scored 15 goals in 150 games for the club.
