Arsenal head coach Unai Emery refused to be drawn into the ongoing contract wrangles surrounding midfielder Aaron Ramsey. Press Association Sport believes talks over a new deal for the 27-year-old have broken down and that he is now likely to leave when his current agreement expires at the end of the season.
Ramsey has started all-but one of the six Premier League games under Emery’s tenure but the Spaniard insists his only focus in the role of head coach is preparing the team.
“There are three elements, three aspects,” he said.
“One is the player and also the player with their family and representatives. The other is the club and the other is the squad. My focus is always on the team. My focus is preparing with the players and only thinking about the match tomorrow.
“Each player has individual aspects to work or to do or to speak with the club or with the team, but my aspect for the focus, only to think, is the matches and preparing for the matches and to speak with the players if they are thinking and are very concentrated on work for giving us the best performance and to help the collective performance.”
