Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey hoping goal against Manchester United can act as springboard to personal success next season

Welsh captain netted for the first time since returning from horrific leg break last season in win at the Emirates, and dedicates strike to those that helped him through recovery

Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey is looking to use the remaining games of the season as a springboard for personal success next season after making successful a return to the Gunners first team following injury.

The Wales skipper had become an integral part of the Gunners' midfield before breaking his leg in last February’s game against Stoke City.

Following a year out of action and two loan spells at Championship clubs Nottingham Forest and Cardiff City, Ramsey has returned to the Arsenal first team and believes that a strong end to this season will stand him in good stead for next term.

He told BBC Sport: "After these remaining games, hopefully I can come back and have a good pre-season, and then go again next year."

Ramsey’s goal on Sunday against Manchester United was his first since his return from injury and the playmaker dedicated his strike to all the people who helped him through his rehabilitation.

He said: "Scoring the goal was a special moment for me. This was worth the wait and so many people have helped me through the tough time I had.

"Hopefully this will give them the same satisfaction as it does me.”

Despite the win for Arsenal a Premier League title appears unlikely still and Ramsey says that the players are just focussed on trying to finish the season off with a bang.

He added: "Our target was just to win the remaining games, so we have started on that.

"Hopefully now we can continue this and let's see where that takes us."
