Ramsey: Wenger Can Win Premiership Title

Jnthn4Arsene Wenger can cement his place among English football’s greatest managers by leading Arsenal to Barclays Premier League glory this term, according to Aaron Ramsey.

Wales playmaker Ramsey’s first-half finish helped drive Arsenal to 3-0 Community Shield victory over Manchester City at Wembley on Sunday.

And the 23-year-old believes long-serving Arsenal boss Wenger has been revitalised by last term’s FA Cup final victory.

Ramsey believes Arsenal’s first major trophy in nine years could now pave the way for a first league title since 2004.

“I definitely think we can win the league – we were top of the table for the most amount of time last season,” Ramsey told Press Association Sport ahead of that win.

“The only thing we need to improve is our away record against the so-called bigger teams: if we had managed to nick the odd point or win in those games it would have been a lot closer last season, and maybe even we would have won.

“So that’s something we can really focus on to work hard to improve. “It’s great news and extremely pleasing for us as players that he (Wenger) signed that new contract, he’s done so much in this game and for the game, and for this club too. “We’re delighted that he’s committed his future to the club again, and we’re all looking forward to working with him for the next three years. “Winning the league again would put him up there with the best managers ever in this league, no doubt.

“He’s been very successful, he’s built some great teams, helped some great players and hopefully now we can go on from last season and be successful again.”
