Aaron Ramsey was more than happy with his form during Arsenal’s brilliant end of season run - but struggled to put his finger on why the club found such great form at the time.
The Welsh international midfielder became an integral part of the Gunners’ side as the secured a top four finish in the Premier League – helped largely by a ten-game unbeaten run at the conclusion of the domestic campaign.
It all means Arsenal will be playing Champions League football once again next season, and Ramsey is understandably delighted to be dining at Europe’s top table once again.
“I've been happy with my form, especially in the second half of the season where I've played in centre midfield. That's where I'm comfortable and that's where I think I play my best football,” he told GiveMeSport in an exclusive interview.
“I've been delighted with the way things have gone for me personally in that period especially.
“We had a fantastic run at the end of the season as a team, and I'm glad we got the job done in the end. Hopefully we can back that up with a good start next term because we've proved we can do it now.”
Ramsey was at a loss to explain why the final months of the season were so much better than the inconsistent form shown by the Gunners at the start of the campaign however, although the 22-year-old felt the addition of some new players might have made an impact.
“I'm not sure to be honest. We had a few players come in over the summer and maybe it takes a bit of time to get used to each other, but we certainly improved in the second half and it's difficult to say what the real reason was for that,” he added.
A similar situation could occur next season, with manager Arsene Wenger pledging to spend in the summer transfer window.
And, Ramsey is in no doubt that Arsene Wenger will make the right decisions for the club, having proved in the past that he can get the best out of players he brings to the Emirates Stadium.
“I'd be happy to welcome anyone to the club. I have complete faith in the manager with regards to transfers - that's one of the things that makes him a great manager,” the Welshman concluded.
“He's done ever so well with the players that he has brought in. He's brought in a lot of youngsters and turned them into great players.”
