    Aaron Ramsey speaks out over fitness after sitting out Wales training

    Aaron Ramsey speaks out over fitness after sitting out Wales training


    Wales star Aaron Ramsey has, on Thursday, spoken out over his fitness, ahead of the nation’s European Championships opener this weekend.

    Wales’ road ahead

    Robert Page’s men are set to kick their Euro 2020 campaign off in a meeting with Switzerland on Saturday afternoon.

    The clash marks just the 2nd of the tournament, with Wales of course set to head into proceedings with fond memories of their odds-defying 2016 efforts still fresh in the memory.

    On that occasion, the Dragons made it all the way to the semi-finals of the tournament, before being ousted by eventual champions Portugal.

    This time around, though, Wales are faced with a major challenge in even navigating their way out of the group stage.

    This comes with Page and co. having been pitted against all of 4-time world champions Italy, an up-and-coming Turkey outfit, and the aforementioned Switzerland in Euro 2020’s Group A.

    ‘It was planned’

    As such, it goes without saying that Wales will be keen to get off to a strong start in their tournament opener this weekend.

    It therefore no doubt marked a major source of concern for the Dragons faithful when, earlier today, it was revealed that star midfielder Aaron Ramsey had not featured in his side’s penultimate pre-Euros training session on Thursday.

    In turn, it came as little surprise when the Juventus man, who has of course battled fitness issues throughout his career, was this evening drawn on his wellbeing.

    Speaking during a press conference, though, Ramsey went on to quell any fears surrounding his potential participation this weekend, assuring that his absence from training was planned ahead of time:

    ‘It was planned that I stayed off my feet.’

    ‘It was a very light session for the boys. I’m all good and looking forward to Saturday.’
