Aaron Ramsey made his Juventus debut in the 1-0 victory over Triestina and described wearing the Bianconeri shirt as a “proud moment.”
The former Arsenal midfielder played the closing 20 minutes of the game and looked impressive as Juve rotated heavily in their final friendly of the summer.
“I feel good. I have had a good rehab so hopefully now I can stay fit and healthy and help the team as much as I can,” Ramsey told the press after the game.
“I am really excited to be a part of it (Italian football) and experience the Italian league. We start now on Saturday, so I am looking forward to that and playing my first competitive match. I am really looking forward to it.
“This was a very proud moment for me to put on this famous jersey. I am happy that I got a few minutes out there tonight.
“I have been working hard to get back fit and hopefully now I can stay fit. I am naturally quite good physically. I have been working hard, and I know I haven’t had the minutes on the pitch, apart from tonight, but I feel good physically. It will take a few games to get there.
“I think I have had a good pre-season. We have got a new Coach who has given us his own ideas. We have been adapting to that. I think the team is in good shape and hopefully now we can have a very successful season.
“We have been working hard on certain tactics and I think he wants to do good to the team, and we have put that into practice a few times. We are feeling quite confident.”
