Aaron Ramsey admitted he’s looking forward to working with former Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri when he was speaking at his Juventus unveiling.
The Welshman, whom we all know was allowed to leave for nothing because Arsenal are a total shambles, told assembled reporters, “I know from this coach, from his time last year in England, he definitely likes to play football and has his own philosophy and I’m sure all the players here will adapt nicely to that.
“I think that from what I saw last season he had a very good season for Chelsea, he got to two finals and won one of them.
“He got in the top four and that is not easy to do, so it was definitely success for him there but hopefully he can bring his philosophy and style to this team.”
He also admitted he had offers from other clubs but once Juventus made their intentions clear he had an easy decision to make.
“Yes, there were other clubs but this is the right club for me and I’m so excited to be here and proud as well,” he said.
“When I knew that Juventus was interested I couldn’t refuse that, it is a great club, one of the biggest in the world and to have that opportunity to come here and play for them is a dream to come and play.”
Ever since Arsenal abandoned their wage structure, they’ve found themselves with the kind of problems Arsene Wenger advised about should they ever abandon their wage structure.
Now, however, the Premier League have lifted the cap that was originally brought in to stop clubs spunking all their TV money on wages and was partly responsible for Arsenal removing Ramsey’s new contract offer.
The Short Team Cost Control was brought in in 2013 but ceased to apply after midnight on Monday 8 July.
If you don’t mind, I’ll just be crying over there in the corner…again.
