Ramsey and Bale will play a big role in Wales' Euro 2016 campaign.

Aaron Ramsey names Gareth Bale as his most talented teammate

Published 1 Comments

Footballers must hate being asked to name their most talented teammate.

They can only please one player, whilst disappointing everyone else.

It must be an incredibly difficult task as well, especially if you play for both club and country at the top level.

Well, that’s the issue that faced Aaron Ramsey when asked him to select his best teammate.

The midfielder’s brain must have been ticking.

Ozil or Sanchez

Does he choose Mesut Ozil? A player that is on the brink of smashing Thierry Henry’s record of 20 assists in a Premier League season.

Or what about Alexis Sanchez? The Chilean has taken to English football immediately following his transfer from Barcelona in the summer of 2014 and has already notched 36 goals for the Gunners.

But Ramsey overlooks both of his club teammates and, instead, looks to a player that he plays alongside for Wales.

No, it’s not Joe Allen.

Welsh buddies

Ramsey selected Real Madrid’s Gareth Bale as his most talented teammate.

You can’t really question Ramsey’s decision. Bale is a world-class talent and has already scored 54 goals for the Spanish club since arriving at the Bernabeu in 2013.

Of course, the choice may not be too popular with Arsenal fans considering Bale played for six seasons at their north London rivals, Tottenham.


During his time in the Spanish capital though, Bale helped Los Blancos to win their tenth European Cup by scoring in extra-time during their 4-1 victory over Atletico Madrid in May 2014.

Lack of silverware

However, both Bale and Ramsey could easily end this season trophyless.

Madrid trail Barcelona by ten points in La Liga and their only realistic chance for silverware comes in the form of the Champions League - where they face Wolfsburg in the quarter-finals.


Ramsey’s side look even more unlikely to triumph this campaign with their only hope being in the Premier League where they are 11 points adrift of league leaders Leicester - although they do have a game in hand.

But in the summer, Ramsey and Bale will team up in the Wales squad as they compete in their first major international tournament since 1958.

The pair will be pivotal to the hopes of Chris Coleman’s side as they look to progress from a group consisting of Russia, England and Slovakia.


Bale played a huge role in the Welsh qualifying for the tournament in France for scoring seven goals as they came second in their group, behind Belgium but ahead of Bosnia, Israel, Cyprus and Andorra.

First though, Ramsey may have to answer a few questions from the likes of Ozil and Sanchez upon his return to the Emirates.
