As he prepares to represent Great Britain at the London Olympics, the Arsenal midfielder has insisted he can only improve on what has already been a glittering career

Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey has said that his best playing days are still ahead of him, despite an impressive career already.

Ramsey is preparing to represent Great Britain at the Olympics, and is expected to play a key role in coach Stuart Pearce’s midfield.

The Welshman believes he can continue improving and play a big part in the new Premier League season with the Gunners.

He told reporters: "I have certainly done a lot so far in my short career, but I am delighted with how it's gone so far, apart from my injury.

"I still think there is a lot more to come from me, but I am working hard and wanting to learn more every day to become the best player I can possibly become."

Ramsey also said that the opportunity to play at the Olympics was too appealing to reject, despite some reluctance among the home nations, and revealed that once he had permission from the Football Association of Wales and Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, he was very keen to play.

He added: "It was down to us whether we wanted to play or not and we chose to play.

"For me, it's a unique thing and there's going to be some great countries with great players involved, so it's great to test yourself against them and we are looking forward to it.

"We are all proud to be Welsh and we are representing our country as well as Great Britain."

Great Britain play their first game of the Olympic football tournament on July 26, when they face Senegal at Old Trafford.
