Aaron Ramsey says Juventus plan more tactically for every game

Wales international Aaron Ramsey has said that he has had a different experience since making the move to Juventus last summer.

The 29-year-old joined the Bianconeri on a free transfer after the expiry of his contract at Arsenal but he has endured a tough season with a number of injury setbacks.

As a result, he has made only 15 appearances in the Serie A and he has yet to cement a regular berth in the starting lineup. Speaking to The Athletic, Ramsey acknowledged that there is more tactical planning for every game in the Serie A and that is something he is not familiar with from his time in the Premier League.

He told: “It’s different from what I’m used to. Even though last season under Unai Emery was going through a lot of things on pictures as well for tactical reasons, Maurizio Sarri does like to go over things very thoroughly. Tactics here, especially in Italy, are such a big thing. Most days, we’ll be doing some sort of tactical work in preparation for the next game.”
Ramsey has bagged three goals and one assist in the league this term. He was able to cement a regular role under Maurizio Sarri before the coronavirus shutdown and will be hoping to retain his spot when the season recommences in June. The former Cardiff City graduate may have struggled with fitness concerns but he continues to retain the faith of Sarri, who has backed him to come good in the long-run.

Juventus are currently at the top of the league standings but they have only a slender one-point advantage over second-placed Lazio. They are scheduled to face Bologna on the road during their opening game on the season restart. On the other hand, Lazio have a tougher assignment with an away trip to Atalanta BC.
