Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey could play for "any team on the planet", according to Wales boss Chris Coleman. The 25-year-old played a starring role for Wales during their memorable Euro 2016 campaign and Coleman feels lucky to have Ramsey in his team.
Ramsey is set to return to the Wales side for their crucial World Cup qualifier against Serbia on Saturday (12 November), after overcoming a recent injury. Coleman admitted that Ramsey's return is a massive boost for the Welsh side, who currently occupy third place in Qualifying Group D.
"Take him out of any team and it's a loss," Coleman told the BBC of the Arsenal midfielder, whose inspirational form helped Wales reach the semi-final of Euro 2016. "That's not a biased opinion because I'm a Welshman and we all love Rambo. I'm looking at it clinically.
"Playing in tournament against the top teams, he was head and shoulders above. In my personal opinion there's not a team on the planet he couldn't play for."
Coleman's remarks come shortly after Ramsey insisted he had no regrets over signing for Arsenal instead of Manchester United in 2008. Ramsey said Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger was the decisive factor behind his decision to reject the Red Devils, who were the Premier League and European Champions at the time.
"I had to make a decision at the time," Ramsey recently told Arsenal's official website. "I flew over to see the boss and I knew straight away that this was where I wanted to be, I wanted to be in his plans and I was just buzzing."
Ramsey has established himself as a key figure in Wenger's Arsenal side after joining the north London club as a teenager. Indeed, the midfielder played a significant role in their back-to-back FA Cup successes in 2013-14 and 2014-15, and he has also become a central player for the Welsh national team.
