The new Bianconeri signing spoke for the first time to reporters after being acquired as a free agent over the summer.

For the first time since signing for Italian Lega Serie A side Juventus, Aaron Ramsey spoke to the press.

“When I heard that Juventus was interested in me I immediately thought that it was a great opportunity, a dream,” his words were echoed by Calcio Mercato.

“At the same time, it is also a challenge for me, being able to have a different experience also as a lifestyle.”

Ramsey added: “Hoping that everything goes well, I know it can be challenging, but I’m ready to start this challenge.”

“I am not in contact with his [John Charles] family but obviously I know that he is a legend in all respects, not only for Juventus but for all the Welsh.”

The player explained: “He is certainly a player to get inspiration from, I hope to follow in his footsteps, I know it represents a lot in the history of Juve. I hope I can emulate it.”

“Thank you all for being here today. I would like to say how glad I am to have arrived at Juventus, one of the biggest teams in the world. Sorry, my Italian is not very good but I’m studying… thanks.”
