Aaron Ramsey has been discussing his Arsenal team-mates and has revealed a few secrets from the Gunners’ dressing room including who he thinks is the club’s ‘teacher’s pet’.
Talking to Soccer AM the Wales international was also asked who was the biggest diva at the club and who was the toughest player in the ranks.
Ramsey was asked which Arsenal players was “tough-as-nails” and was pretty swift with his reply, going for a centre-back who has been pretty flawless this season, including taming a certain Diego Costa in September’s 3-0 win over Chelsea.
“Koscielny probably,” he said. “He flies into tackles and never holds back. He’d run through a brick wall.”
The midfielder also went for another of his French colleagues when asked who the biggest diva in the Arsenal dressing room was.
“Giroud,” he said. “You know he gives it the big hardman but he gets a little tap and he’s over and screaming as if he’s been shot!”

Finally, Ramsey was asked about who Wenger’s teacher’s pet was and explained it was a certain World Cup winner who has certainly been doing the business this season.
“Mesut. He’s probably the teacher’s pet he gets a few extra days off than the rest of us,” he explained.
“He’s always in the boss’ room asking for something or whatever but yes he seems to get it.”
Ozil’s form this season, including his stunning goal against Ludogorets, means it is perhaps little surprise if the Germany international does get preferential treatment from his manager.
