  • Aaron Ramsey in action for Arsenal against Atletico Madrid

Alas, Atletico would go on to win the clash, via a rather feeble penalty shootout which saw Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Joe Willock and Edward Nketiah all miss for the Gunners before goalkeeper Antonio Adan fired home to seal the victory for Atletico.

"When I came to this club I felt the warmth of this team is really different, it's like a family and everyone is taking care of you".

The Czech shot-stopper, who is in a similar situation with one year remaining on his own contract, was asked about Ramsey's prospects and said: "That's a private matter for the club and the player".

"Historically, Arsenal have worked with young players to give them the chance to work with the first team, for them to show their quality in each match".

The England youth worldwide scored Arsenal's equaliser in a 1-1 friendly draw against Atletico Madrid in Singapore on Thursday - with the LaLiga side going on to win the resulting penalty shoot-out 3-1.

The Gunners returned from the break looking like a new team and grabbed an equaliser through youngster Emile Smith Rowe. "I think about the match today first, then training tomorrow, the match on Saturday to continue our preparation", the Spaniard said. "Aaron has the condition to be one of the captains".

"I am in contact with them and it's always nice to talk to them to know how things are going in their lives".

Arsenal's Emile Smith-Rowe celebrates scoring their first goal.

The 53 year-old has struggled to become a favourite with the fans at the Emirates after failing to meet promises.

"It's every day. He's starting today's match because his performances have been good in every training session". "Very young kids, but we have been working with them these days to integrate them into a group which has been working together for seven years, with a very strong defensive structure".
