A former Arsenal Player, Perry Groves, has claimed that the imminent departure of Arsenal midfielder, Aaron Ramsey is completely down to the manager, Unai Emery.
The midfielder is set to join Juventus at the end of the season and many Arsenal fans would have preferred for the Welshman to stay.
The midfielder has been nothing but professional during the whole saga which has only endeared him much more to the Arsenal faithful.
Speaking to LeoVegas, Groves expressed shock at Arsenal’s decision to let go of the Welshman.
“I can’t believe Arsenal have let themselves get into this position over contracts with Ramsey, [Mesut] Ozil and [Alexis] Sanchez.
“It doesn’t make business or footballing sense to let your best players get into the last season of their contracts.
“Aaron Ramsey would be a £35-40million player if he was under contract, but we’re letting him leave for free.
“I think it was entirely Unai Emery’s decision to withdraw the contact offer so he is clearly comfortable letting Ramsey leave.
“I’m a big fan of Aaron Ramsey. I think he’s a brilliant example of a modern-day footballer.
“His attitude has always been spot-on. He’s very low maintenance off the pitch. He does get the goals.
“I’m sad to see him go but Emery probably thinks that he can get someone else to play in the No. 10 role on less money than what Ramsey was looking for.”
