The Welshman reveals about the move to Italy and his first impressions of the Serie A.
Since his remarkable move to Juventus in the summer of 2019, Aaron Ramsey reveals about the move and his career in Serie A so far. In an interview reported by Calciomercato, Ramsey opens up about his move to Juve, Cristiano Ronaldo and life in Italy.
“After the situation at Arsenal, Juventus came forward making me a proposal. They wanted me at all costs, they tried very hard to have me,” says Aaron Ramsey.
“I’m excited to have taken this opportunity and I’m happy to be able to play for this great club, to represent it and to make my contribution to try to win many titles,” he added.
The 29 year-old has appeared on nine occasions for the Old Lady while also registering a goal against Hellas Verona back in September. However, the former Arsenal man has more or less seen himself warming the benches at Juventus so far.
Serie A is a difficult league in terms of breaking past defences and that might be the reason why Ramsey is taking time to settle. “Serie A is much more tactical than the Premier League. Many teams defend themselves in depth and you have to try to break the two blocks in different ways,” admits Aaron Ramsey.
“In the Premier League there is more space, probably the intensity is slightly greater because you have to look more behind you. I was impressed by the championship, the quality and the technique.”
While at Arsenal, Aaron Ramsey was a part of an unsettled team that made its way in and out of the UEFA Champions League. The Gunners’ form at the European level in the recent years has rather been a disappointing one.
Unfortunately for the player, his new club have also had their misfortunes in the Champions League. Juventus have twice lost the finals of the prestigious competition while getting knocked out after the round of 16 stages thrice in the last five years.
Speaking about the club’s ambitions this season, Aaron Ramsey reveals, “”It is certainly a trophy that we want to win. First of all, you have to work hard to win the championship. This is what gives you the strength to face such important competitions and enter the Champions League.”
“What we want is to try to win something. Fortunately, we have incredible players on the team and we are ready to help each other to achieve this.”
Finally Aaron Ramsey spoke about his teammate and one of the greatest in world football, Cristiano Ronaldo. After all, it is a privilege for any player to share the pitch with the five-time winner of the Ballon d’Or.
“Cristiano is incredible. He is a fantastic player, his records speak for him. He is one of the greatest and playing for his team is an honour and a source of pride.”
“Being part of Juventus, in general, is exceptional, like being able to play with all his players. It’s really wonderful to be part of it,” concludes Aaron Ramsey.
