Wales and Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey has hailed former Tottenham midfielder Scott Parker as the ‘toughest’ opponent he ever played against while lauding former Gunners captain who now plays for struggling Barclays Premier League champions Chelsea as his role model.
“[Parker] doesn’t give you a moment’s rest on the ball and is always kicking away at your ankles or tackling you. He is definitely the toughest opponent I’ve played against,” Ramsey said.
“[Fabregas] plays in the same position as me and to have him to look up to when I first came here.
“He was playing every week, assisting, scoring. He was just a very accomplished midfielder, so probably him.”
