Ian Wright has expressed his excitement about how Jacob Ramsey will develop under Steven Gerrard following his arrival to Aston Villa.
Speaking on Match of the Day, the TV pundit claimed that the 20-year-old midfielder could become an exciting player to watch under the new Villa manager. Ramsey started this weekend in Gerrard’s first match in charge of the Birmingham giants.
Moreover, the England youth international put in a brilliant shift. With Villa supporters on social media praising Ramsey for his performance against Brighton as the Villains secured a 2-0 win.
Furthermore, Wright is seemingly excited for how much the youngster can develop: With the Arsenal legend saying: “I’m quite excited about Ramsey. With Gerrard and Gary McAllister here, what Ramsey is going to become I really am quite excited about that.”
Indeed, Ramsey has already made an impression on the Premier League this season. With the youngster featuring often under former manager Dean Smith. And there’s a chance that the midfielder could flourish under Gerrard.
The Villa boss had a solid record at Rangers for nurturing exciting young players into excellent first-team names. And for Gerrard, Ramsey could be his first big project with the Midlands side.
Wright praise highlights Ramsey’s potential with Villa
At 20, Ramsey is only just at the start of his Villa career. Yet this praise from Wright only proves just how much potential the young midfielder has. And Gerrard could be the man to unlock it.
The former Liverpool captain has a way of getting the best out of younger players. And after a fine performance against Brighton, Gerrard appears to already be working his magic on Ramsey at Villa.
