Aaron Ramsey scores his first goal for Juventus vs Verona


Aaron Ramsey made a bold move when he joined Juventus in the summer. 

The Welshman left Arsenal as a free agent after watching the clock tick down on his contract. 

To the bewilderment of Gunners fans, the club had got themselves in a position where they lost one of their most naturally creative midfielders for nothing. 

Ramsey reportedly had plenty of options, but he headed to Turin. 

Perhaps the former Cardiff man thought he would be enjoying another season of glittering success, the Bianconeri having won the last eight Scudettos. 

Yet since Maurizio Sarri took over, the Old Lady have not had things all their own way. 

The Antonio Conte revolution has been gathering pace over at Inter Milan, and Juventus went into Saturday evening's game against Verona second. 

They also had cause for concern at the other end of the pitch in midweek too, when they threw away a 2-0 lead away to Atletico Madrid in their opening match of the Champions League. 

Sarri must have been scratching his head then, when Miguel Veloso put Verona 1-0 up. 

Ramsey's first goal for Juventus 

With a front line of Juan Cuadrado, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Paulo Dybala, Juventus fans can't have been too worried - but it was Ramsey who found the equaliser with a long-range strike. 

That is the 28-year-old's first goal for the club and what a way to get off the mark. 

It was also his first start, so he will no doubt have made a huge impression.

There is an increasing appetite for British players to go abroad and try their hand in another league - just look at the success Jadon Sancho has had at Borussia Dortmund after leaving the Manchester City Academy. 

If Ramsey can enjoy even half of those exploits in Italy, he'll have made a very wise choice indeed.
