Do it for Aaron Ramsey - Arsene Wenger urges Arsenal to win title for stricken midfielder

04 March 2010 05:56
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has challenged his players to win the title for Aaron Ramsey.

Wenger is refusing to put a date on a comeback for the 19-year-old, who was ruled out for the rest of the season after his leg was broken in two places by a challenge from Stoke's Ryan Shawcross in Saturday's 3-1 win at the Britannia Stadium.

But the Frenchman has dedicated the rest of the campaign to Ramsey.

'He is as low as you can be when this happens to you and you are flying,' said Wenger.

'Of course we were all very sad and very down after what happened to him.

'The one thing we can do now is give him all the support it takes. Also this gives us one more reason to fight (for the title) until the end. We want to do it for him.'

With the Wales international starting his recovery, Wenger is determined to give him all the time he needs.

'It is too far away to set any realistic deadline,' said Wenger. 'Let's let him heal. The good news is the surgery went well and it is not a career-threatening injury.

'But it is two breaks and to get back to your best you need not only to practice again but you need time to recover your co-ordination.

'He is a young boy and he will recover from this but it is a bad injury.'
