Wright Feels Arsenal Were Correct To Withdraw Contract To Ramsey

Arsenal legend Ian Wright believes the club were right to withdraw their contract offer to midfielder Aaron Ramsey.

The ex-Gunners striker feels the club should not be dictated to by players, and that by walking away from negotiations, they are sending out a statement to the rest of the playing squad:

“I have to stick with Arsenal, they have to make this kind of stance, the amount of players we’ve lost in this fashion.”

“I believe that Arsenal want him to stay, but I think they have to make this stance. I think Arsenal have to do this, they have to start making everybody else in the squad know how it’s going to be from this day onwards.”

“And that’s why the withdrawal of the contract is a big statement from them. And it’s a massive one as we’re on the verge of losing another player that’s a good player for Arsenal.”

Arsenal have seen a number of first team stars run down their contracts in recent years, with Alexis Sanchez the most recent example, being sold to Manchester United in last season’s January transfer window.

Mesut Ozil was in a similar situation, with six months remaining on his contract but he signed a new three and a half year deal in February reportedly worth a £350,000 a week.

It looks as though the Gunners are looking to prevent players and their agents trying to secure such lucrative contracts in the future with their stance on Ramsey and it might well be worth a bet with https://winningsportsbets.co.uk/ on where the Welshman ends up.

However, it does mean that the Welshman can leave in a cut-price deal in January or on a free transfer at the end of the season.
