Arsenal Midfielder Aaron Rmasey has praised his manager’s sustained belief in him that helped in his development.
The Welsh midfielder suffered a horrendous injury at Stoke in 2010, and his return to football a year later saw his scintillating form diminished.
Despite pressure from the Arsenal fans to sell the 23-year old, manager Arsenal Wenger stood by his youngster and the result was the winning goal against Hullcity in the Facup final.
Ramsey also scored in the Wembley Community Shield destruction of Manchester City.
Speaking to BT Sport he said: “Arsene Wenger has been massive for me. He has always believed in me, even through the bad periods, he has always played me and I am grateful to pay him back.
“The boss has given me a role where he knows I will get forward into the box. I am feeling good in my position, I feel I am picking the right chances to get forward.”
Ahead of Crystal Palace clash on Saturday, he noted:
“The atmosphere in the camp is great. We really want to work hard for each other and the club is on the up.
“Everyone is excited and the arrival of Alexis Sanchez has made everyone excited. After the FA Cup win I really feel this club is on the up and I hope we can go on to be very successful in the coming years.”
