Arsenal FC midfielder Aaron Ramsey and Crystal Palace defender Joe Ledley were interviewed by Copa90, during a New Balance commercial shooting.

The two are international teammates for Wales and look forward to participating in their first ever major tournament next year, i.e. the Euro’s. Wales needs just one point to qualify for next year’s premier showpiece to be held in France.

Speaking during the interview, Ledley revealed his huge admiration for the skills and speed of international teammate Gareth Bale. The Crystal Palace man also identified Ramsey as the current best player in the league.


Ramsey also candidly boasted that his international team, Wales were currently 9th in the World, one rank above England. The Arsenal FC superstar was also asked about his time with Cardiff, when Manchester United, Arsenal FC and Everton all were vying for his signature. The midfielder revealed that it was a surreal moment for him, when great managers such as Sir Alex Ferguson, Arsene Wenger left text messages on his phone.

The 24-year-old also talked about his initiation at Arsenal FC. There’s a long standing tradition at the club wherein a new signing has to perform an initiation song. However, for Aaron’s case he had to give a speech. Although the Welsh international did reveal that Arsenal FC’s only summer signing, Petr Cech performed an amazing initiation rap and went around each table rapping about the players sitting there.
