Last month the 28-year-old scored his first goal for the club against Verona – assisted by the Portuguese superstar – and now Ramsey has revealed his experience of having him on his team.

‘He breaks the ice straight away and makes you feel like you are talking to anybody else. There is a family feeling about the whole club.’
Unbeaten Juventus sit second in the Serie A table, trailing Antonio Conte’s Inter Milan by two points, having won five and drawn just once.
Ramsey says the reigning league champions, who have clinched the Scudetto on each of the last eight seasons, are driven towards success and determined to take home the crown once again.
‘Everybody is in it to achieve one thing: to win football matches and trophies, he added. ‘Everybody is driven and very focused on what they need to be doing.’
