Arsenal star Aaron Ramsey has declared that their FA Cup win at the end of last season has just made the north London club’s squad hungry for more success in the future, as reported by Wales Online.
Ramsey has started the new campaign off in terrific form, sustaining the same sort of performances that led to him being praised repeatedly in the first half of last season.
Arsenal had not won a trophy for nine years prior to their triumph in the showpiece finale against Hull City at Wembley stadium in May, and the quest for silverware had dominated the club’s narrative in recent seasons.
As to whether Arsenal’s squad are ready to rest on their laurels after managing to achieve, Ramsey offers a different answer entirely.
The Welsh international said: “Of course there’s that great buzz of winning something like that, but it does just make you hungry for more success.
“With Arsenal, after the years that went by with people saying you haven’t won anything for this number of years, then this number of years or whatever, to finally put that to bed and win something was important because it was something to build on. Winning just makes you more determined to go on and do more.”
Arsenal have strengthened considerably this summer, but there remain doubts about their options in defence and in midfield, with only two recognised senior central defenders available to manager Arsene Wenger.
