[Current Wales captain Aaron Ramsey, who was handed the armband by Speed] I was given the tragic news this morning. To say I am devastated is an understatement. My thoughts and prayers go out to Gary’s family and friends. Today the world has lost a great football manager but even more sadly a great man. He will be missed by all

[Aaron Ramsey when asked about Arsenal Fan TV] Ha ha, no [I don’t watch AFTV]. Though I’ve been called a Ham Roll on there or something. Is it a good thing or bad thing? I haven’t a clue, mate. But Rob Holding calls me Ham Roll now

[Aaron Ramsey speaks after his final appearance inside the Emirates Stadium as an Arsenal player] Obviously it was very emotional. It’s been a hell of a journey, and 11 years of my life. So much has happened in that. You can tell by my voice how much it means to me. I’m just grateful to have had the opportunity to play for this great club. I came here a boy at 17 years old, and I’m really leaving a man

[Aaron Ramsey bid an emotional goodbye to fans] I have really grown up here. I am just grateful for the opportunity to play for this club for such a long time. I’ve met so many great people here, made great friends and Arsene Wenger bringing me to the club and giving me that opportunity was pretty special

To last this long, at a club like this, is something in itself. That doesn’t happen very often anymore, that’s why it’s so emotional and why the bond is so strong

I just want to say thank you very much for all the fans’ support over the years, there has been a few lows but lots of highs and the bond has been so strong because I have been here for such a long time and they have been with me through thick and thin, watching me go from a boy to man

[Aaron Ramsey says he was starstruck by Cesc Fabregas, William Gallas and Kolo Toure when he joined Arsenal] It happened so quickly at Cardiff. I played the final game of the season before and then had a pre-season, went off with first-team, we had a mad cup run where we got to the final and that was it then. It was done within the year,’ Ramsey explained

All my life I’ve been trying to achieve this thing of playing for Cardiff and then the next thing I know I’m walking into a dressing room with the likes of Fabregas, Gallas and Toure

I’m 17 years old, I’m just like, ‘What’s going on here?!’. I just felt out of place but they were really cool guys, made you feel really welcome but still you had to pinch yourself

Wenger was a massive pull. He would give youngsters opportunities, he talked me through how he saw my career path going, how he wanted to improve me and what I needed to improve on

He brought me straight into the first-team to train every day with these world-class players and he believed in me. I just felt he really wanted and felt like he made the most effort to try and secure me

[Ramsey says he just couldn’t stop the tears from ‘pouring’ down his face as he delivered his emotional farewell speech to the Emirates crowd following Arsenal’s 1-1 draw with Brighton last May] I wasn’t prepared for that. I was just thinking I’m going to go out there, say my bit and I couldn’t control anything. It was just pouring out. I spent 11 years there, I grew up there, I left Cardiff at 17, I’ve been married, had kids and been through so much on and off the pitch. That club meant so much to me and always will

[Aaron Ramsey talks about his struggle to resist the temptation of sweets while in isolation at home] My wife is a great cook and I like to eat well, so it’s a problem because there are too many cookies. I like to drink tea and now every time I make a cup of tea, I also eat a cookie. I can’t resist it

[Aaron Ramsey admits he was looking to escape his comfort zone when walking away from Arsenal] Juventus is a massive club, one of the top teams around in the world so when they come calling for you it’s hard for you to turn them down. I was in a position where I was at a club for a very long time and I fancied a change to get out of my comfort zone to learn a new language, hopefully very slowly. Again to test myself in a different league and all the cup competitions we’re still in. We’re a top team and hopefully we can go far in many things and win many trophies and titles here

[Juventus midfielder Ramsey backs Premier League and Serie A resumption] Across Europe now, I think it’s only right that football tries to restart. For us and the Premier League to restart is only normal, and as footballers we want to go out there and play. We miss going out there and playing, and even though it’s going to be a different situation this time, we still love the game and we’ve missed this, so we’re very excited to have it back.

It’s important now for us to try and complete the league. Hopefully everybody can stay healthy and that gets achieved, and then go into the Champions League after that maybe. Who knows? There’s so many possibilities and things that can happen from now until then, but we’ll take each week as it comes, and we’ll just be grateful to have the chance to go back out there again

[Ramsey tells Sarri his best position and explains what it’s like to play with Ronaldo and Dybala] That’s the position I came here to play and that’s where I feel most comfortable on the pitch. I’ve said it many times over the years. That’s my position. That’s where I play the best football

[on Ronaldo] Ronaldo’s one of the best players in history and there’s no questioning his commitment to the game and to what he needs to do for himself. He’s first into the gym doing all his bits and bobs and then he wants to win every single match on the pitch. All the players do but there’s a real determination every single time. He just goes out there and produces week-in, week-out and scores so many goals. So many important goals as well. Hopefully, it can help us achieve our targets this year

[on Dybala] I can just confirm that Dybala is an unbelievable player. He’s very gifted - a team player - and some of the things he’s done in training and some of the games this season has been quite breathtaking
