Arsenal star Aaron Ramsey injured in warm-up ahead of Chelsea game

Injured

Arsenal fans were alarmed to hear Aaron Ramsey was injured in the warm-up ahead of their game against Chelsea.

Not only were the fans who are big admirers of the player worried, given he’s a key player for their system – under any manager – but it seems that the ones who are concerned about the hold ups in his new contract and just why that is.

Some have claimed he’s holding the club to ransom, and wants more money than they’re willing to pay – but others think he’s going to Chelsea.

The Blues have been heavily linked with Ramsey and are interested in his contract issues – and many people on social media made the joke about how the player is of course sitting out the game against his ‘new team.’

While that’s far from the case at the minute, it seems understandable that the Gunners do not want to risk a player who they see as key, in what is only a pre-season game – and with the season starting in under a week and a half, keeping him safe on the sidelines is certainly the right option – not that many on Twitter saw it like that…
