Arsenal manager Unai Emery has praised Aaron Ramsey’s attitude and wants the midfielder to end his career at the Emirates on a high this season.
Wales international Ramsey’s 11-year stint with the Gunners will be coming to an end this summer after he signed a pre-contract agreement with Italian champions Juventus.
The 28-year-old will be the second high-profile player to leave the Emirates on a free transfer following Jack Wilshere’s switch to West Ham United at the start of the current campaign.
Since the midfielder’s move to Turin was confirmed he has put in a number of impressive performances, none more so than Thursday’s 2-0 Europa League quarter-final, first leg victory over Napoli.
Ramsey netted the opener in that match, his second goal in three games, and Emery is hoping the Welshman can finish is Arsenal career in the best possible way.
As reported by The Mirror, he said: “It’s not easy for him after he signed for Juventus but his focus is to help us and his attitude is a very amazing attitude towards each training session.
“I continued speaking with him about doing something very important in the last matches here in two competitions that are very important for us.
He wants to do something important for the supporters and I want to do something important with for him in his last matches here.”
Arsenal are in action on Monday when they make the trip to Vicarage Road to take on Watford and the visitors are the 2.25 favourites to win, a draw is priced at 3.60 while the Hornets – who have an FA Cup final against Manchester City to look forward to next month – are a 3.10 chance.
