Aaron Ramsey has played his last game for Arsenal, after Gunners boss Unai Emery confirmed that the midfielder will miss the rest of the season due to a hamstring injury.
The Welshman picked up the injury in the second-leg of Arsenal’s Europa League quarter-final win over Napoli, and he will now be denied a farewell appearance having agreed to join Juventus on a free transfer this summer.
There was hope that Ramsey would recover before the end of the season, but Unai Emery has confirmed he won’t play for the Gunners again, while also paying tribute to the 28-year-old.
“We can’t use him, injuries come for players like that and we have players who can play,” he said.
“But he was in a good moment when he took this injury. I had a good experience with him, he transmitted his energy and his heart is red like Arsenal.
