Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has slammed the Wales Football Association over Aaron Ramsey’s hamstring setback, insisting that the midfielder’s latest injury could have been avoided.
Ramsey was taken off in the 57th minute of the 2-0 win over Bayern Munich on Tuesday at the Emirates with a hamstring injury.
Wenger in a statement on on Thursday confirmed that the 24-year-old has now had a scan but will not be back in action for several weeks, while also admitting his frustration that Ramsey played 90 minutes of his country’s Euro 2016 qualifier against Andorra the previous week.
“He had a scan today but he’s out. I believe he will be out until after the next international break.
“With the [last] international break, the fact that he played against Andorra certainly cost Bale and him as well.” Wenger told Arsenal official website
Wenger also confirmed that the Wales international will be out until after the next international break.
Ramsey is now set to miss the Gunners’ league games against Everton, Swansea and Tottenham, the League Cup tie against Sheffield Wednesday and the UEFA Champions League return leg clash against Bayern Minich.
