'Arshavin's quite a funny guy, one of the lads' - Ramsey quote

Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey has revealed he can't wait to get one over on his club team-made Andrei Arshavin, when the two lock horns for their respective countries next week in Cardiff. The World Cup qualifier couldn't come at a better time for young Ramsey, who has shown good form for club and country, notching a sublime goal against Italy for the u21's over the weekend. Quote below:"It was a great feeling to score a goal like that, let alone against a team like Italy."But it wasn't about who scored the goals it was about the team getting the result.Whether Arshavin will be fit enough for the game is debatable after he pulled his groin during the gunner's defeat at Old Trafford last week. However that didn't stop him from teasing the Welshman over his own knock. Quote below:"We haven't spoken too much about playing each other but I picked up a knock against Man United, a slight strain to the back of my knee." Ramsey said"And when we were in the changing rooms afterwards he was laughing saying at least I wouldn't get to play against Russia!"He's quite a funny guy, just one of the lads and a great player. But I'm ready for Russia and hopefully we can get a good result.The former Cardiff star further paid tribute to Arshavin's talents on the pitch. Quote below:"He's a top player, very good on the ball, technically-gifted, can score goals from anywhere, like against Man Utd or get four like he did against Liverpool. He has great vision."He's definitely someone I can learn from in training. Not just me, anyone."Kids from all age groups can look up to him as a player and try and play like him and idolise. He's just a great role model for younger people to look up to."
