Juventus midfielder admitted that he found it difficult to turn the Serie A down last summer, after joining from club Arsenal.

The international ended an 11-year stint with the Gunners to make the switch to Italy, having failed to negotiate an extension to his in North London.

Ramsey confessed that the stature of Juventus played a decisive role in his decision to depart English football for Maurizio Sarri’s side on a free transfer.

“Juventus are a great club, one of the best in the world,” the 29-year-old told Polish YouTube channel Truck. “I wanted to get out of my comfort zone, and when Juve call you then it is hard to refuse.

“In the Premier League I was more of a box-to-box midfielder, but here in Serie A my role is much more tactical.”

Ramsey has scored four goals in 24 appearances this season for Juventus, as the Bianconeri led Serie A at the point at which all were suspended due to the spread of the coronavirus.
