Aaron Ramsey is “really excited” to begin his Italian football career after making his Juventus debut. “It’s a very proud moment for me to put on this famous jersey.”
The Welsh midfielder came off the bench for the final 20 minutes of this evening’s1-0 friendly win away to Triestina.
“I feel good, yeah. I have had a good rehab so hopefully now I can stay fit and healthy and help the team as much as I can,” Ramsey told reporters.
“I am really excited to be a part of it (Italian football) and experience the Italian league. We start now on Saturday, so I am looking forward to that and playing my first competitive match. I am really looking forward to it.”
He arrived from Arsenal carrying a muscular injury and this was his first game since April 18.
“This was a very proud moment for me to put on this famous jersey. I am happy that I got a few minutes out there tonight.
“I have been working hard to get back fit and hopefully now I can stay fit. I am naturally quite good physically. I have been working hard, and I know I haven’t had the minutes on the pitch, apart from tonight, but I feel good physically. It will take a few games to get there.
“I think I have had a good pre-season. We have got a new Coach who has given us his own ideas. We have been adapting to that. I think the team is in good shape and hopefully now we can have a very successful season.
“We have been working hard on certain tactics and I think he wants to do good to the team, and we have put that into practice a few times. We are feeling quite confident.”
