Steven Gerrard claims that Aaron Ramsey is the best attacking midfielder in the Premier League when played centrally.
Gerrard was speaking after Arsenal’s 3-0 victory over Olympiakos, with Ramsey playing in a central role after long spells as a wide midfielder.
It’s fair to say that Gerrard was impressed with the display, piling praise on Ramsey during his stint as a pundit for BT Sport.
“Mentally, I don’t think he’ll be happy himself playing out wide because he hasn’t got the legs,” Gerrard said.
“His qualities are all in the middle and for me when he’s in that form he’s the best attacking midfielder in the Premier League.
“So you’ve got to play your best players where they want to be and I’m sure he’ll want to be in the middle.”
It’s a ballsy call, but that seems to be the way to make it in punditry now.
