Ian Wright Hits Out at Arsenal Board for Allowing Aaron Ramsey's Contract to Run Down

Legendary former Arsenal striker Ian Wright has criticised the north London club's handling of contracts after it was confirmed that Aaron Ramsey has signed a pre-contract agreement with Juventus.

He will be reunited with former Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny when he joins the Old Lady in the summer, but will first look to see out his Arsenal contract in style.

Wright continued by praising Ramsey's contributions in north London, highlighting the 28-year-old's work ethic and drive to succeed despite fierce criticism as a key component to making him a great player.

And Wright believes that the club's handling of other contracts is to blame for Ramsey's departure, with the Gunners shelling out £350,000 per week on a new deal for Mesut Ozil , as well as handing  Henrikh Mkhitaryan  a £200,000 per week deal when he joined from Manchester United last January.

"Ramsey is just another situation where he could run the contract down," Wright told BBC Radio 5 Live “And when you consider the contracts that have been given out, they just couldn’t afford to keep Aaron Ramsey to keep him alongside the players they’ve got with the contracts that they’re on.

The Welsh midfielder has been linked with a move to Turin for a number of months after negotiations broke down over a new Arsenal deal last October, with the club reportedly unwilling to match his wage demands.

“I think what people will see now is when you watch how he plays and the professionalism, he’s one of those players that, no matter how poorly Arsenal were playing, he never hid," Wright added.
