Ramsey move to Juventus paying off

Ramsey gamble paying off at Juventus

 Aaron Ramsey scored on his first start for Juventus as the former Arsenal man's Turin gamble looks to be paying off as he flourishes in the Italian league.

Ramsey moved to the Serie A champions this season on a lucrative free transfer reported to be worth €503 000 per week.

The 28-year-old has impressed in his first three league games for the eight-time reigning Serie A champions having recovered from a hamstring injury picked up with Arsenal.

He found the net on his debut against Verona on September 21, and impressed in the following two league wins over Brescia and SPAL.

"Three wins out of three in Serie A this week. Onto the Champions League Tuesday," Ramsey wrote on social media.

Juventus will host Bayer Leverkusen in their Group D clash in Turin, having been held 2-2 at Atletico Madrid in their opener.

Ramsey had come on as a late substitute against Atletico with the Italians conceding a goal just two minutes later.

"I've waited a long time for this moment, I'm really happy, both for the victory and for the goal," said Ramsey of scoring.

"It was important after the Madrid game."

Juventus are second in Serie A – two points behind Inter Milan – with their only slip-up a goalless draw with Fiorentina.

After a bout of pneumonia, new coach Maurizio Sarri has been implementing his changes from predecessor Massimiliano Allegri.

And Sarri has been giving more space to the Welshman, who the former Chelsea boss has been easing into the team.

Ramsey has played an average of just over an hour in each of his league games so far.

"We're trying to preserve him from the point of view of playing time," explained Sarri.

"There's a big difference between playing 60 and 90 minutes."
