Aaron Ramsey left Arsenal in the summer of 2019 and joined Juventus on a free transfer. Given the experience under his belt from England, the midfielder was placed on humongous wages and was one of the club’s highest-paid players at the time.
Ramsey then looked like he settled down in Italy almost immediately and even learnt the language almost immediately. A few good performances for the club soon came to an end due to a recurring theme in the Welshman’s career.
During his time at Arsenal, Ramsey struggled with multiple injuries, and it meant he was mostly on the treatment table for most of the time. Injuries soon caught up with him at Juventus, and it meant the player was out of theng XI often.

After his return from injury, it became difficult for him to nail down ang berth, and game time soon became difficult to come by. Following the sacking of former manager Andrea Pirlo alongside the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo, Ramsey had hoped there would be room for him to play more.
It is now two months into the current season, and the situation has not gotten any better for the 30-year-old. If anything, it has gotten worse.
Ramsey has made only four total appearances for Juve this term across all competitions. Out of those four apps, one start came back in August, and the rest have been mere substitute cameos. As per Transfermarkt, the midfielder has only managed 106 total minutes of total action this season and is now somewhat displeased with his current situation.
Reflecting on his current situation at the club, Ramsey opened up and gave an insight on his thoughts in an interview quoted by The Mirror.
The Welshman more or less took a dig at the club’s management and even claimed he could have stayed fit under different management. This comes after the player has recently struggled with ‘muscle fatigue’.
Ramsey also admitted that it has been quite difficult struggling with injuries yet again, and he would love to play more on the pitch.
The player concluded by being positive about his frustration while hoping that it would come to an end soon.
Ramsey is currently on international duty with Wales, and he’ll be hoping to inspire his side in their quest to secure a spot in the World Cup for 2022.
In the absence of Gareth Bale for their clash against the Czech Republic, Ramsey will lead his side, and a win would see them move to 10 points, only behind group leaders Belgium.
In two weeks, club football will resume, and Ramsey will be hoping for a turnaround under Massimiliano Allegri.
