Looking back at it, Seaman said: "The true stories never come out.
"Ashley has been dealt with wrongly by the club and I am not going to go into anything else on that.
"I love Ashley as a player and as a man. He is also the best left-back in the world, not one of them, the best left-back.
"He used to get changed down but one from me, because he was number three.
"I have seen him grow up into the great player that he is now.
"And I feel really proud for what he has achieved. I know some Arsenal fans may not like that but I am sorry but I know what I know, and I like him."
