Former Arsenal boss Unai Emery insists that he had no say in Aaron Ramsey's decision to leave the club on a free transfer, but backs the Welshman to succeed at Juventus.

Former Arsenal manager Unai Emery has insisted that he had no say in Aaron Ramsey's exit from the club last summer.

The Welsh midfielder spent 11 years at the Emirates Stadium before letting his contract run down in 2019, leaving for Juventus on a free transfer.

Emery confirmed that the decision was made between the player and the club's hierarchy, but believes that Ramsey will prove to be a success at Juventus, despite making only nine Serie A starts so far.

"The decisions were made by the club and Ramsey himself. The player decided to leave and moved to a big team, which inevitably led him to another football," Emery told TuttoJuve.

"Aaron will be a very important player for Juventus; he has the same ambition. I congratulated him because he chose a team where he can win so much.

"Juve is a big name in European and world football. After so many years in England, this is a great challenge for him."

Ramsey has been limited to just 24 appearances for Juve this season, scoring four goals and registering one assist.
