Wenger, Ramsey Take EPL Awards for September

MOST COMMENTED

Arsenal achieved a double-swoop in the English Premier League’s Manager and Player of the Month awards for September, with coach Arsene Wenger and midfielder Aaron Ramsey winning both, respectively. The Gunners began the month in 12th-place in the EPL standings but ended it in first following four consecutive wins over Spurs, Sunderland, Stoke City and Swansea. Ramsey scored four times during the month, including two against Sunderland and the winner at Swansea.

Wenger was full of praise for the way the 22-year-old has moved on from the horrific injury he suffered against Stoke back in February 2010. "It took him a long time to get completely over that, especially in duels, in fights (for the ball)," the Frenchman said. "He was resistant to go into the fights for a long, long time but now he's over it. He had a difficult period last season where people became a little bit impatient with him. He lost confidence and sometimes, if you give the players a little rest, it can rebuild their confidence. They can think about their game and come back stronger and that's what happened to him.”

He added: "As for the rest, he scores goals now. I always thought he would score goals if he improved his technical quality. When you watched the games, you saw him always in good positions in the box. When he got the chances he missed sometimes but he has improved tremendously on that. He has a great engine, a great spirit and has an obsession, he always wants to be better. That is, of course, a very good ingredient."
