Wales Boss Chris Coleman Speaks Out On Aaron Ramsey Injury
Chris Coleman has confirmed to reporters that Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey twisted his ankle and took a kick during a 2-1 win over Andorra on Tuesday night.
Wales boss Chris Coleman has confirmed to reporters that Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey twisted his ankle and took a kick during a 2-1 win over Andorra on Tuesday night.
Ramsey started in the Welsh midfield and was trying to keep ball during the final few minutes but appeared to slip slightly on the 3G surface. The 23-year-old received some treatment before limping off to be replaced for the final minute as Wales held on to secure a vital 2-1 win thanks to a double from Real Madrid’s Gareth Bale.
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger will now be left sweating on the seriousness of Ramsey’s injury as he prepares to welcome champions Manchester City to the Emirates on Saturday lunchtime.
Shortly after the game, Wales boss Chris Coleman confirmed to reporters that Ramsey had twisted his ankle and also received a kick, but the former Fulham boss was hopeful the midfielder will be passed fit to play this weekend.
Coleman on Ramsey (taken off late on in Andorra): "He twisted his ankle and got a kick. Hopefully he'll be ok for Arsenal on the weekend."

Obviously it’s good to hear Coleman not say it’s a serious injury, but we won’t really know the full extent until further tests have been undertaken, so we’ll just have to sit tight and see how things develop.
Ramsey is yet to really hit top form yet this campaign but has still proven his importance with two goals including a late winner against Crystal Palace on the opening weekend, so it will be a huge blow if he’s ruled out.
