[Aaron Ramsey when asked about Arsenal Fan TV] Ha ha, no [I don’t watch AFTV]. Though I’ve been called a Ham Roll on there or something. Is it a good thing or bad thing? I haven’t a clue, mate. But Rob Holding calls me Ham Roll now

[Aaron Ramsey speaks after his final appearance inside the Emirates Stadium as an Arsenal player] Obviously it was very emotional. It’s been a hell of a journey, and 11 years of my life. So much has happened in that. You can tell by my voice how much it means to me. I’m just grateful to have had the opportunity to play for this great club. I came here a boy at 17 years old, and I’m really leaving a man

[Aaron Ramsey bid an emotional goodbye to fans] I have really grown up here. I am just grateful for the opportunity to play for this club for such a long time. I’ve met so many great people here, made great friends and Arsene Wenger bringing me to the club and giving me that opportunity was pretty special

To last this long, at a club like this, is something in itself. That doesn’t happen very often anymore, that’s why it’s so emotional and why the bond is so strong

I just want to say thank you very much for all the fans’ support over the years, there has been a few lows but lots of highs and the bond has been so strong because I have been here for such a long time and they have been with me through thick and thin, watching me go from a boy to man

[Aaron Ramsey says he was starstruck by Cesc Fabregas, William Gallas and Kolo Toure when he joined Arsenal] It happened so quickly at Cardiff. I played the final game of the season before and then had a pre-season, went off with first-team, we had a mad cup run where we got to the final and that was it then. It was done within the year,’ Ramsey explained

All my life I’ve been trying to achieve this thing of playing for Cardiff and then the next thing I know I’m walking into a dressing room with the likes of Fabregas, Gallas and Toure

I’m 17 years old, I’m just like, ‘What’s going on here?!’. I just felt out of place but they were really cool guys, made you feel really welcome but still you had to pinch yourself

Wenger was a massive pull. He would give youngsters opportunities, he talked me through how he saw my career path going, how he wanted to improve me and what I needed to improve on

He brought me straight into the first-team to train every day with these world-class players and he believed in me. I just felt he really wanted and felt like he made the most effort to try and secure me

[Ramsey says he just couldn’t stop the tears from ‘pouring’ down his face as he delivered his emotional farewell speech to the Emirates crowd following Arsenal’s 1-1 draw with Brighton last May] I wasn’t prepared for that. I was just thinking I’m going to go out there, say my bit and I couldn’t control anything. It was just pouring out. I spent 11 years there, I grew up there, I left Cardiff at 17, I’ve been married, had kids and been through so much on and off the pitch. That club meant so much to me and always will
