Aaron Ramsey has heaped praises on Juventus team-mate Cristiano Ronaldo, hailing the forward as an unbelievable and exceptional athlete.

Aaron Ramsey has heaped praises on Cristiano Ronaldo, revealing his admiration of his athleticism and work ethic.

Prior to the suspension of football, Ronaldo was enjoying yet another stellar campaign having scored 25 goals in 32 games in all competitions.

Even in lock-down, CR7 has continued to maintain his intense physical sessions and even took it a step further when he was spotted training in a stadium in Madeira yesterday.

Aaron Ramsey joined Juventus from Arsenal last summer and admitted he has seen ‘exceptional’ stuff from Ronaldo since they became team-mates.

“He’s an exceptional athlete,” he told singer and songwriter Niall Horan during an Instagram Live chat as quoted by Goal.

“He’s first in the gym, he goes through his whole routine first and then he’s out onto the pitches.

“He’s a winner, wants to win every single game, every small-sided game, whatever it is, then he’ll be out there practicing his free-kicks and things like that and shooting. Ramsey added.

“You don’t need me to tell you how good or driven he is, he’s unbelievable, he’s one of the greatest in the history of the game.”

Ramsey has been unable to secure a first-team spot under Maurizio Sarri at Juventus, with his game-time largely cut short by injuries since he joined the club.
