Maurizio Sarri speaks on Aaron Ramsey’s situation at Juventus

Juventus manager Maurizio Sarri has said that Aaron Ramsey is slowly getting into his groove after recovering from a niggle. The Wales international joined the Bianconeri on a free transfer from Arsenal during the summer but he has since struggled for regular gametime due to four separate disruptions due to minor injury setbacks.

As such, he has been restricted to just five starts in the Serie A but Sarri remains optimistic that the former Gunners will turn things around during the backend of the campaign, he told: “Aaron Ramsey is growing both as a condition and a belief. It was not easy for him to adapt, coming from the Premier and from a bad injury.”

Meanwhile, Juventus’ recent defeat at Hellas Verona has dropped them to the second spot on the table on goal difference to leaders Inter Milan. Sarri was spotted in a private meeting with Juventus chief Andrea Agnelli after the loss and when asked about the same, the ex-Chelsea boss clarified that it was nothing other than a normal dinner, he added: “We were supposed to have dinner after the Fiorentina game, I was at Coverciano, and the President had commitments and so it was arranged for later. We had a normal dinner, however it was planned.”

Juventus can return to winning ways in the Serie A this weekend where they have a winnable fixture against relegation-threatened Brescia. Prior to that, however, they make the trip to San Siro to face AC Milan in the first leg of the Coppa Italia semi-final. Juventus have got the better of Milan on numerous occasions in recent years but there is plenty of attention for the forthcoming tie with Zlatan Ibrahimovic in the opposite ranks. The 38-year-old has fared impressively on his comeback with three goals and an assist from six appearances.
