Arsène Wenger spoke to Aaron Ramsey earlier this week and says the Welshman is already finding himself bored.

The midfielder suffered a season-ending broken leg in the Gunners' 3-1 win over Stoke City last month. Prior to that the 19-year-old had been enjoying a run in the first-team and had scored four times this season.

But Aaron now faces a lengthy spell on the sidelines and Wenger says that is frustrating the teenage sensation.

"I spoke to him on Tuesday before the [Porto] game," said the manager.

"You are bored when you are flying on the pitch and then suddenly you are lying on the bed. You can only be bored.

"He is confident that he will come back. He is determined, but at the moment it is a problem of patience, and when you are 19-years-old, patience is not your first quality."
