The defender claims that the Wales international is the man to step forward and take the captain's place in the team after he completed his move to Barcelona this week
Arsenal defender Bacary Sagna has tipped Aaron Ramsey to have a big impact at the club following the exit of Cesc Fabregas.

Ramsey starred in the club's 1-0 first-leg victory against Udinese in the Champions League on Tuesday night, and Sagna believes that he has seen enough from the former Cardiff City player to convince him that Fabregas' boots can be filled.

"Every season we start a season and some players leave at the end of it. That's what happens and I just want to wish him [Fabregas] good luck," Sagna told reporters.

"I will miss him of course but Aaron Ramsey did very well and he will show he is a great player as well."

Ramsey's career was progressing well after breaking into the first-team at Arsenal and with Wales, but he has had to regain his place in the side after suffering a broken leg against Stoke City in the 2009-10 season.

Sagna has also hailed Arsenal's 1-0 win over Udinese at the Emirates, and is pleased that his side have kept clean sheets in their first two games of the season.

"It was the goal of the night - to score without conceding," he told Arsenal Player. "It was not easy because they had many opportunities to score but we won the game so now we need to look forward.

"We knew Udinese from before, the Italian league is quite tough and if you let them play they can be dangerous. But from the game against Newcastle and tonight again we did not concede a goal. We know if we want to be successful we have to defend as a team as we did tonight and keep playing.

"But we are all united for the same goal and we showed we have a great team spirit."
