Arsenal manager Unai Emery has insisted that midfielder Aaron Ramsey’s form will not be affected by the breakdown in his contract talks with the club, according to the Metro.
The 27-year-old Welshman is in the final year of his contract and had been in talks over a renewal with the club, but the Gunners chiefs pulled out of the negotiations this week, much to his disappointment.
Emery speaking to the media insisted that the contract situation hasn’t affected Ramsey’s focus and commitment. “The focus in on tomorrow,” said Emery.
“Tomorrow I want, and we want, his best performance.
‘Might this affect his performances? I think not. I want to have also the best preparation for him for his mentality and his quality to give us our best performance to help us to win.
‘Each player, they have this individual situation with his contract and this is one thing – for me today is not the day to speak a lot.
‘It is enough we are speaking about individual players like Aaron Ramsey, he is an important player and it is tomorrow helping the team with his performance.
‘The football career for the players is very short. They are professionals for 10, 12 or 15 years, but not more, and they need to take the best performance and also work very hard in these years for his future and his family’s future.
‘Now I am sure the best for us and the best for him is to take this opportunity to do the best performance each match, to show everyone their best quality.”
