Arsene Wenger cools Aaron Ramsey return talk

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has played down expectations that midfielder Aaron Ramsey is on the brink of a return to the first-team.

Ramsey, 19, has been out since suffering fractures to the tibia and fibula of his right leg against Stoke in February.

"Aaron should be in full training next Friday [5 November]," Wenger told the club website.

"But then you have to give him at least a month with the reserve team."

Ramsey, who signed a new long-term contract with the Gunners in June as he recovered from his injury, stepped up his rehabilitation by starting outdoor training in October.


Wenger had suggested in August that the Wales international may be ready for an outing in November but the Frenchman seems keen not to rush the teenager back to Premier League action.

If Ramsey does return in a month, he could be in line to face Fulham at home on 4 December.
