“I want to thank you all for being here and I'm very happy to be here at Juventus. They're one of the best teams in the world. I'm working hard with the rest of the group to be ready as soon as possible.” These were the first words spoken by Aaron Ramsey after he was officially unveiled as a Bianconero. But what made these opening remarks particularly impressive was that they were spoken in Italian.
Not only that, his passion and desire to succeed at Juventus was evident throughout his press conference: “When I heard that Juventus were interested in me, I thought it would be a dream to come here, as well as a great challenge. You can’t turn down this opportunity. This is the right club for me. I hope to be a part of the history.
“I think the squad and the players and the manager have all welcomed me very nicely so far. I have spoken to him (Sarri) a few times. He is very approachable and easy to talk to. I am looking forward to helping my new teammates. I am looking forward to the challenge and I hope to play my part.”
