Arsenal boss Wenger surprised Ramsey axed as Wales captain

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is surprised by Aaron Ramsey's axing as Wales captain.

The Arsenal star, 21, has been replaced by Swansea's Ashley Williams - seven years his senior.

Gunners boss Wenger said: "I'm a little bit surprised because it's always a big decision to take an armband away from a player.

"I don't think it will affect him. If anything it can help him play with more freedom and add something to his game."
