‘Proud moment’ as Ramsey makes Juventus debut

MILAN (AFP) – Aaron Ramsey made his debut for Italian champions Juventus last Saturday in their final pre-season friendly, a 1-0 win over Serie C side Triestina.

The Welsh international midfielder and former Arsenal star, who signed a four-year deal in February worth a reported EUR7 million (USD7.9 million) a season, came on for Federico Bernardeschi in the 70th minute of the game in Trieste.

“This was a very proud moment for me to put on this famous jersey,” said Ramsey who hadn’t played since April due to a hamstring injury.

“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 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.”
