Aaron Ramsey backed for Manchester United move by former Wales boss Chris Coleman

first_imgRamsey won the FA Cup three times with Arsenal (Picture: Getty Images)Coleman has sympathy with Ramsey as he tries to settle into life in a new country, having managed abroad three times, at Real Sociedad in Spain, AEL in Greece and Hebei China Fortune.He is not ruling out the midfielder turning his fortunes around, but says that if he continues to sit on the bench, he should leave.‘I understand why Aaron went to Juventus. They are a great club and they always have a great chance of winning the league,’ continued Coleman.‘He had been at Arsenal a long time, probably didn’t achieve what he wanted to achieve because Arsenal haven’t achieved what they would have liked in the last 10 years.‘He went there for good reasons but he’s too good to be sitting on the bench. If he’s got a chance at Juventus and Sarri likes him then okay.‘He might be out of form, maybe it’s taking him a little while to get used to a different culture. It’s not a walk in the park when you move from one country to the next, a different type of football, a different ask. But he wants to be in the starting eleven.

Advertisement Comment Aaron Ramsey has been backed to make a move to Manchester United (Picture: Getty Images)Aaron Ramsey would fit in perfectly at Manchester United, if he wanted to leave Juventus and return to the Premier League this summer, believes his former Wales boss Chris Coleman.The 29-year-old left the Gunners for Juve last year and has not quite had the impact he was hoping for as he traded north London for Turin.Juve are top of Serie A and were on course to defend their title before the coronavirus hiatus, but Ramsey has started just nine league games this season and two in the Champions League.The Welshman has scored four goals in his debut campaign in Italy, but without a guaranteed place in the starting XI, he has been linked with a return to England and Coleman feels Manchester United makes sense as a destination.AdvertisementAdvertisementADVERTISEMENT‘He’s at his best when he’s under a bit of pressure, when he’s playing against the best teams and when he’s playing in the big games.’ Coleman told the Mirror.‘If it’s not going to happen for him at Juventus he’s definitely the type of player who can handle playing for Manchester United.‘When you play for a club like Manchester United the jersey is much heavier than when you are with a smaller club in the Premier League.‘If you play for a big club you’ve got to handle that extra weight. He certainly has the appetite for that.’ Advertisement Aaron Ramsey backed for Manchester United move by former Wales boss Chris Coleman Metro Sport ReporterSunday 17 May 2020 7:58 amShare this article via facebookShare this article via twitterShare this article via messengerShare this with Share this article via emailShare this article via flipboardCopy link979Shareslast_img read more

Australia facing 29-year rankings low

Australia facing 29-year rankings low

first_imgSTEVE Smith’s men are just one defeat away from becoming the lowest-ranked Australian Test team in almost three decades.Australia’s nail-biting loss to Bangladesh in Dhaka has seen them nominally slip from fourth to fifth in the International Cricket Council’s Test rankings, which are officially updated at the end of each series.And another loss to a spirited home side in the second Test next week will see the Aussies drop to sixth, their lowest ranking since 1988.That 1988 side led by Allan Border is considered one of the weakest in Australian Test history and was labelled as such by the English media when they arrived in the UK for the 1989 Ashes tour, which ultimately turned their fortunes around.In July 1988, when the Aussies were last ranked sixth, they had won just eight of 43 Tests in the preceding five years, during which time they had lost series at both home and away to England, New Zealand and the West Indies.They moved up to fifth in August of that year after England were thrashed 4-0 at home by the Windies and their famous Ashes triumph 12 months later started a rapid rise to the top of world cricket in the 1990s and early 2000s.Smith conceded his young side still had “a long way to go” before they would rise up the rankings again.“I don’t know if we’re better than that at the moment, that’s a difficult question,” Smith said of Australia’s current ranking.“I think we’re still a young team, obviously some new players have come in only last year in the summer and some guys are still trying to find their way. We’re a young team and we’re a team that hopefully is going to continue to improve.“We’ve still got a long way to go to rise up in the rankings and hopefully as a group we can continue to improve and get better.”While Australia risk sliding to an uncommon low in Bangladesh, they will retain fifth spot with either a win or a draw in Chittagong next week.And recent history suggests the Aussies could produce a swift change in their ranking with victory in the Magellan Ashes against England this summer.The Aussies were last ranked fifth in the world following their 2013 Ashes defeat in the UK, after they had gone nine successive Tests without a win. But their subsequent Ashes whitewash on home soil and 2-1 series win in South Africa saw them jump to top spot in May the following year.And the at-times fickle nature of the ICC’s rankings is underlined by the fact the Aussies were handed the official Test mace as world No.1 a little more than 12 months ago. Their rise to No.1 last year was followed by five successive defeats (to Sri Lanka and South Africa), five straight wins (against South Africa, Pakistan and India) and now three losses and a draw from their past four Tests (against India and Bangladesh).But despite the ever-changing nature of the official rankings, the Aussies have repeatedly stated their desire to be the No.1 team in the world.“We want to be No.1 in all three formats across men’s and women’s cricket,” Pat Howard, Cricket Australia’s Executive General Manager of High Performance, said earlier this year when he signed a new two-year contract.Australia’s men’s team are currently ranked second in one-day internationals and sixth in T20s, while the women’s team hold down the No.1 spot in the women’s rankings, which incorporate Test, ODI and T20 cricket.The result in Dhaka has also given Bangladesh a massive rankings boost, handing them 10 rankings points and ensuring they stay just ahead of the West Indies, following the Caribbean side’s shock victory against England at Headingley.CURRENT ICC TEST RANKINGS(official rankings will be updated at the end of the series)1) India – 1252) South Africa – 1103) England – 1024) New Zealand – 975) Australia – 946) Pakistan – 937) Sri Lanka – 908) Bangladesh – 799) West Indies – 79last_img read more
