Former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has labeled the Gunners as the biggest loser with Aaron Ramsey set to depart for Juventus in the summer. The 69 years old French manager stated
Back in January, Ramsey posted an emotional farewell to confirm his decision to depart from Arsenal having signed a pre-contract agreement with the Bianconeri in the winter transfer window.
Arsene Wenger was at the helm of affairs when the Cardiff City academy graduate made his debut for Arsenal back in August 2008. Collectively, the pair won three FA Cup titles with the midfielder scoring the match-winners in two of the finals.
Addressing a congregation at the Laureus Sport for Good presentation, Wenger highlighted that Arsenal will miss the attacking acumen of Ramsey. Despite suffering a potential career-ending injury in 2010, the midfielder has momentarily registered 61 goals in 357 appearances for Gunners.
"It will be a loss for Arsenal. I must say it will be an interesting move for Ramsey," Wenger declared.
"He is a player who is great going forward. His main quality is he can keep the final ball and he makes interesting runs from deep.
"You don't find many players today who can make midfield runs off the ball. It will be an interesting addition for Juventus."
Arsene Wenger subsequently spoke on life outside the dugout although he has been linked with a host of top managerial jobs.
"My future is unknown," the 69-year-old said.
"Even for me. I enjoy daily life now and I have been travelling a lot recently all over the world.
"I am enjoying a little bit less pressure. And more freedom as well. But I miss the competition."
