New Wales skipper Aaron Ramsey still believes his old club Cardiff City can join him in the Premier League.
The Caerphilly-born playmaker, who played 23 times for the Bluebirds in two spells at his boyhood club, also thanked City for a loan spell he believes has prepared him for Arsenal’s title run-in.
The Bluebirds are in the midst of a run of form which has seen them go from automatic promotion candidates to clinging to a play-off position, after picking up just two points from a possible 12.
But the 20-year-old midfielder does not share some of the fans despair: “I still think Cardiff are in a strong position,” he said.
“They still have a great squad, with good players all over the pitch. With Craig Bellamy they have a potential match winner in every game so I definitely think Cardiff will still go up,” he said.
And Rambo believes his most recent spell was great for all concerned. “ I thought it was a really successful spell. I am very grateful to Cardiff for giving me the chance to get back to fitness and a bit of form and I think I played pretty well so hopefully it was good for both of us.
“It was great to play in front of the fans again,” he added.
And Ramsey hopes the spell will aid his run to the end of the season. “Hopefully now I can get back to my best and play a full part in the rest our season [at Arsenal] and help the team out."
