Arsenal never used Ramsey in his best position claims Juventus sporting director

Ramsey agrees contract with Juventus

Aaron Ramsey joined Arsenal in 2008 from Cardiff City.

Ramsey has gone on to play 361 games across all competitions for Arsenal, scoring 62, assisting 64 and becoming somewhat of a club legend.

However, after failing to come to terms over a new deal with Arsenal, Ramsey recently agreed a pre-contract arrangement with Juventus.

Ramsey will link up with Juventus in the summer and is said to be on around £400,000 a week.

Fabio Paratici on Ramsey

The Welshman has played 30 games across all competitions for Arsenal this season, in which he has scored three and assisted seven.

While this is a decent goal contribution return for a midfielder, Juventus sporting director Fabio Paratici believes Arsenal are not getting the best out of Ramsey.

Paratici has stated that Ramsey is best suited to playing Ramsey in the ‘mezzala’ role in a three-man midfield:

“He is a different player from what we have got. 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.

“Ramsey is a player who, I reckon, has never found his position, because he has never played as a ‘mezzala’ 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.”As quoted by the Evening Standard.

Arsenal’s next game sees them take on BATE in the Europa League on Thursday.
