Arsenal boss Wenger admits having to convince Ramsey about scoring ability

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has revealed how he convinced Aaron Ramsey about his goalscoring ability.

Ramsey has been a revelation for the Gunners this season.

Wenger crowed: "His evolution has been similar to Cesc Fabregas. For a long period Fabregas was there but could not score goals.

"He said to me 'But I cannot score goals'. I said 'Don't worry, just be in the situation'.

"Once the first goes in, the rest follow. Why? Because you add time and composure to the fact that you are in the position.

"As long as you convince your mind you cannot score, then you rush your game and it shows. You need to be relaxed."
