Aaron Ramsey, Arsenal’s FA Cup hero², hopes Arsene Wenger will sign a new deal at the club after guiding the Gunners to a record-breaking 13th triumph in football’s oldest knockout competition.
The Welshman, repeating his Wembley heroics of three years ago, grabbed the decisive goal in the final as Arsenal overcame Premier League champions Chelsea 2-1.
Facing the press at full time, the midfielder said he and his teammates owed the boss the victory after a roller coaster season.
“It’s been an up and down season but to finish it with an FA Cup has to be a successful season.
“The boys deserve it and I’m happy for the manager to get another FA Cup.
“I hope he stays here, he’s been fantastic for me and fantastic for these players.
“He deserves this. Hopefully, he’ll be here next season because we owe him a lot.”
Wenger is out of contract at the club at the end of June. It is expected that a decision about his future will be made in the coming days.
