Arsene Wenger won't rush Aaron Ramsey return
Monday 01 November 2010
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has warned Aaron Ramsey remains over a month away from making his return to the Gunners' first team.
Wenger last week revealed Ramsey was on target to resume full training in the coming days, but said at the time the Welsh teenager would not be rushed back.
Ramsey has not played since suffering a compound fracture of his right leg against Stoke in February.
Although the 19-year-old midfielder will join up with the rest of the first-team squad at the end of this week, his manager has indicated it could be December before he is ready for the rigours of the Barclays Premier League.
"Aaron should be in full training next Friday," Wenger told club website www.arsenal.com.
"But then you have to give him at least one month competition with the reserve team."
