Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey has said that he is looking forward to developing a strong partnership with midfielder Jack Wilshere as both of them look to put previous injuries behind them.
The two youngsters have developed together as a pairing ever since Arsenal signed Ramsey from Welsh side Cardiff City, but serious injuries to both of them at separate times have prevented them from playing a lot alongside of each other.
During an away game against Stoke City, the Welshman suffered a broken leg after a rash Ryan Shawcross challenge and that saw him ruled out for just over a season.
As for Wilshere, he has only just come back from an ankle injury that kept him out of action for 17 months.
Now the two are back playing regularly in he first time and Ramsey is delighted to be playing alongside Wilshere and insists that the two are looking forward to developing a formidable partnership in the heart of the Arsenal midfield.
"Me and Jack have both been out for long periods of time with injury and we haven't had the opportunity to play with each other that often," Ramsey told the Matchday Show on Arsenal Player.
"Hopefully now we're both back fit we'll have more of an opportunity to play together.
"We understand each other and we've been training together for a while. I played with Tomas [Rosicky] towards the end of last season and that seemed to work so it's only getting stronger as the season goes on.
"The injury I had takes a while to get over and to get mentally back into it.
"But I feel really good at the moment. I'm happy with my form and can't wait for the season to get going now to get back and hopefully kick on from where I left off.
"The lads are confident [about the new season]," added Ramsey. "We had a great run-in at the end of last season and we've carried on from where we left off."
