Aaron Ramsey picks Arsenal's 'biggest diva'

All things at the Emirates might be looking pretty rosy at the moment after Arsenal extended their run of good form with a dramatic comeback from 2-0 down against Ludogorets in the Champions League on Tuesday.

But fans will know that their aspirations for the season will be put firmly to the test this November - a month they traditionally struggle with.

A 3-2 win in Bulgaria was definitely the right start and the mood within the camp in north London appears to be as high as it has ever been since they last won the Premier League over 12 years ago.

So what better time for Aaron Ramsey to dish out the dirt on his teammates?

As part of a feature for Sky's Soccer AM, the Gunners midfielder was asked various questions about those he shares a dressing room with to provide supporters with a bit of behind the scenes insight into what life at the club is really like.

You can see the full video below, as Ramsey didn't hold back in taking a few digs at some of the club's big stars.

The first question the Welsh international was asked regarded the biggest diva in the team.

Without much hesitation, the 25-year-old responded: "Giroud," before starting to chuckle away to himself.

"He gives it the big hard man but if he gets a little on his toe or something he's over and screaming as if he's been shot," Ramsey added.

For a striker who is usually fairly brave in the air, it might be a little surprising to learn just how soft the French international actually is behind closed doors.

Giroud showed his aerial prowess again last night by scoring Arsenal's second against Ludogorets with a firmly met header to level up the scores before half-time.

Elsewhere in the interview, Ramsey labelled Laurent Koscielny as the team's hardest player and Mesut Ozil as the teacher's pet of the group.

He continued: "Mesut is probably the teacher's pet. He gets a few extra days off than the rest of us.

"He's always in the boss' room asking for something or whatever, but he seems to get it."

After watching his majestic winner last night, you can understand why Wenger will be so keen to keep his star man happy.

Even more so now Ozil has just over 18 months left to run on his contract.

Talks are believed to be ongoing but until the German ace signs on the dotted line Arsenal supporters will be forgiven fearing the worst.
