'Juve didn't have a Ramsey'

Fabio Paratici claims Juventus ‘don’t have another player like Aaron Ramsey in our squad’ and that Arsenal never played in him in his right position.

Ramsey will join Juve on a free transfer this summer and Paratici [pictured, left] believes the Welshman could be the missing piece of the Bianconeri’s midfield jigsaw.

“We’ve got him, but he’s a different player to the others we have,” the sporting director told Gazzetta dello Sport.

“We don’t have another player like him in our squad. He has more technique than our midfielders but less versatile.

“He’s also less stubborn and less tactical, even though he runs a lot. He’s a man for the final pass and he has an eye for goal.”

The 28-year-old has been used in a variety of ways by Arsenal, including as a winger…

“Ramsey’s a player who, in my opinion, still hasn’t found his position because he’s never played as a mezz’ala in a three, which is his role as it lets him make runs in behind,” explained Paratici.

“Failing that, he can play as a dynamic attacking midfielder, like [Simone] Perrotta did at Roma for example.”
