Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey has received the backing of Wales national team manager Chris Coleman to become the next Arsenal captain.
With Germany defender Per Mertesacker due to hang his boot at the end of the current Premier League season, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger disclosed last week that the Welshman could potentially take on the role.
Although Aaron Ramsey is behind players like defender Laurent Koscielny, Goalkeeper Petr Cech, and Per Mertesacker at the moment, many fans think he has all the much-needed qualities to take on the Captaincy role.
Having formerly captained his National team, Chris Coleman took the armband away from the 26-year-old as he thinks the death of Gary Speed had affected the midfielder.
Coleman said he tried to take the pressure off Ramsey because a lot of things had changed with him. He recalled going to Arsenal’s training base to talk to Ramsey, and he was brilliant.
He said Ramsey accepted the decision and the Wales manager said he is not surprised by Arsene Wenger’s comments about the midfielder being a future Arsenal captain.
Including possibly becoming captain at North London club Arsenal, Aaron Ramsey could also be in line to take on the Captaincy once again for Wales national side.
