Juventus chief takes subtle dig at Arsenal over Aaron Ramsey

Arsenal have never used Aaron Ramsey in his best position, the Juventus sporting director has claimed.

After Arsenal refused to offer a new contract to Aaron Ramsey, the midfielder has agreed to join Juventus in summer. He signed four-year contract deal, worth in the region of £250,000-a-week.

And Bianconeri’s sporting director, Fabio Paratici, has taken aim at the Gunners over the use of Ramsey during his 11 years and 357 appearances at the Emirates. (via Mirror)

“He is a different player from what we have got,” said Paratici. “We don’t have someone like him in our squad.

“He is more technical, he’s a final ball man, he has a nose for the goal. He’s less ‘nasty’ in defence and less tactical.

“Ramsey is a player who, I reckon, has never found his position, because he has never played as a ‘mezz’ala’ in a three, which is his role.

“He can also play a bit further up the pitch, like [Simone] Perrotta did at Roma, for example.”
