Arsenal's Ramsey discovering old form after tough period

Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey believes he is getting back to the form he showed prior to a serious leg injury.

The 21-year old Wales international netted a lovely goal in the Gunners' 3-1 Champions League win over Olympiakos on Wednesday night and suggests that he is slowly finding form after a tough time recently which also included the death of his national team boss Gary Speed.

"I had a really bad injury and it takes a while to get back to your best," Ramsay told the Daily Mirror.

"But I'm feeling good, confident again and it's like I'm getting back to my old self and the form which got me here in the first place.

"It's always difficult to overcome things like that in life, a lot happened last year for me, there was loads of things going on off the pitch for me as well but I'm feeling happier now and hopefully that's showing now in my performances.

"I think I grew up a lot as a person while I was going through it. It does make you stronger and it's just getting over the mental side of it."
