Aaron Ramsey has revealed he sought the advice of a Juventus legend before he accepted the iconic No 8 shirt after joining the club this summer.
The Welshman was officially unveiled by the Italian champions on Monday afternoon in Turin and he was quizzed on the responsibilities that come with wearing the No 8 shirt worn by Claudio Marchisio, Antonio Conte and Didier Deschamps.
'I know Marchisio was an unbelievable player, grew up here and had a fantastic career. I spoke to him a couple of times in J Medical.
'If I can emulate what he did for Juventus I would be pretty proud of that. I know it comes with responsibilities but I am ready for that.'
