Arsenal match-winner Aaron Ramsey says winning the FA Cup means this season has been a success for the Gunners.
Arsene Wenger’s side finished fifth in the Premier League, meaning they missed out on Champions League football for the first time under the Frenchman.
However, the Gunners ensured they ended the season on a high with a simply superb performance to beat Chelsea 2-1 thanks to goals from Alexis Sanchez and Ramsey.
Speaking after the game the Wales international insists the season has been a success and could not hide his delight at winning the trophy yet again.
“I can’t describe this. It’s been an up and down season. We’ve finished with the FA Cup so it has to be successful,” he told BBC Sport.
“I’ve got the winner again. I love this competition. The boys deserve this. I’m happy for the manager. To get another FA Cup – delighted.”

Wenger revealed after the game his future at the club is due to be decided next week and Ramsey says he hopes the Frenchman will stay on.
“Of course I want him to stay at club. He deserves this,” he added. “We changed the formation and had a lot of success. Fair play to him, he changed the system. Hopefully, he’ll be there next season.”
Wenger certainly got his tactics absolutely spot on against Chelsea with a win that means he is the only manager to have ever won seven FA Cups, a phenomenal record.
