Wales coach Chris Coleman believes 'Ramsey is at his best'

Gareth Bale may be the Welsh player currently making the headlines, but manager Chris Coleman believes midfielder Aaron Ramsey is another man playing at his peak.

The build-up to Wales' World Cup qualifiers against Macedonia and Serbia has been completely overshadowed by Bale's world-record move to Real Madrid, and how much of a part he will play in this international double-header.

But, while the saga of Bale's exit from Tottenham was ongoing, across north London, Ramsey was turning in a string of superb performances.

The 22-year-old midfielder has scored three goals in his last five games and picked up two man-of-the-match awards, and is set to feature for Coleman's men in Skopje on Friday despite nursing a groin problem.

The Wales boss believes the former Cardiff player is now producing the best form of his career.

He said: "Aaron has been brilliant. He is showing now what we all thought he was capable of with his performances. He's been superb for Arsenal this season.

"All that has happened is he has taken time and games to get stronger and get that fluidity back in his play.

"He's got a spring in his step and is confident. He's doing things at both ends of the pitch. He's defending well, positionally he is much better and he's linking the play up in the last third.

"This is his best form and he's playing his best football. Even before he had the injury.

"This is the best we've seen from him."
