Emery fails to assure Aaron Ramsey of Gunners future


The Wales worldwide had apparently looked set to sign a new four-year deal, but social media posts - which have since been deleted - from Ramsey's Avid Sports and Entertainment Group agents claimed early in October that Arsenal had changed their mind.

Emery again refused to discuss the future of Aaron Ramsey at length after the Wales midfielder said he wants to stay until the end of the season.

Ramsey's future is still be resolved and the Wales worldwide is set to leave the Gunners on a free transfer at the end of the current campaign unless the situation changes.

"For the moment I am very happy of course for the club because I am an ambassador for Arsenal but especially for Unai Emery because he's a great manager", he told reporters (via the Express) while attending the 2nd Teqball World Cup in Reims. Unfortunately for the Spaniard, they have looked defensively porous in most of those games and Emery admitted that the Gunners have been riding their luck.

"After more than a month, if he feels first he is doing some things well, and then when he can play games in the training, we can start to think he is OK to play".

He added: "It's the same, my answer".

Arsenal coach Unai Emery has called on his players to improve if they are to keep up with the Premier League's top teams and urged supporters to stay calm despite the team's nine-match winning streak. My reason, I explain to every player and to you also, I want the mentality for the next match. "I want his performance like the other players. They are very competitive, have very good players and we need every single player, and our mentality together to be stronger than in the last match". But after, we are going to play Thursday [against Sporting Lisbon in the Europa League], and we are going to play Sunday also [against Crystal Palace], two matches very quickly after Leicester. "It's not different [than it is] for other players". "But in the first 45 minutes I thought we needed to do better".

And while Petr Cech has been back on the training ground this week after a three-week injury layoff, Emery said he is not ready to play yet: "Petr Cech is getting better from his injury but he's not training with the group".

"The first is to finish in the top four and I think they can because they have a good squad, good quality, they spent a lot of money this summer for some players".
