Aaron Ramsey made his debut for Italian champions Juventus on Saturday in their final pre-season friendly, a 1-0 win over Serie C side Triestina.
The Welsh midfielder and former Arsenal star, who signed a four-year deal in February worth a reported seven million euros a season, came on in the 70th minute in Trieste.
“This was a very proud moment for me to put on this famous jersey,” said Ramsey. “I am happy that I got a few minutes out there. I have been working hard to get back fit and hopefully now I can stay fit.
Ramsey won three FA Cups in his 11 years at Arsenal.
“I am really excited to be a part of it and experience the Italian league,” he continued. “We start now on Saturday, so I am looking forward to that.
Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo did not make the trip to north-eastern Italy because of muscular problems, while coach Maurizio Sarri was also absent because of flu.
But a stunning Paulo Dybala goal after 38 minutes sealed a win.
