‘I don’t think the players even knew who I was!’

Aaron Ramsey has been through a lot since he joined us back in June 2008.

The Welsh midfielder was just 17 years old when he joined us from Cardiff City but has developed into one of our most important players, scoring more than 50 goals for us including two Emirates FA Cup final winners.

There have been tough times, too. Ramsey had to overcome a horrific leg break just four years into his senior career, but he returned stronger than ever to become a leading light for club and country. 

We caught up with our No 8 at London Colney to discuss those early days at Arsenal and the inner strength he found to get through the toughest spell of his life.
