Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has tipped midfielder Aaron Ramsey to win the PFA Player of the Year award at the end of the 2013/2014 season.
The Welshman has been The Gunners’ star-man so far this season and his brace against former-club Cardiff City at the weekend has taken his tally of goals this season to 13 in all competitions already.
However, Ramsey will have stiff competition from the likes of Wayne Rooney, Luis Suarez and Sergio Aguero, but Wenger believes he will become the second Welshmen in a row to win it after Gareth Bale took home the award last season.
‘He has been outstanding until now. You want always to jump into the future but we have to enjoy the present.
‘If he keeps playing like that, of course [he will be player of the year] but it has only been a third of the season.’
The Frenchman added: ‘I have to treat him like the other players and give him a breather when he needs it. I want him to continue to develop, but he is so young you imagine why should he stop his development now?
‘Let’s not forget that one year ago everyone questioned him. That shows you that he deserves credit for that – he has turned a corner and he can continue to improve.’
