But the Serie A giants revealed Ramsey made a return to training with Andrea Pirlo’s side on Tuesday and took full part as they prepared for the Turin derby against Torino on Saturday.

A training update on the Juventus website read: “Today’s training session which, like last week, saw the Juventus players not involved in their respective national teams undergo possession and technical exercises.

“[Paulo] Dybala and Ramsey took part in the whole group session.”

Ex-Arsenal star Ramsey has played in just one of Wales’ last ten internationals since the Dragons qualified for Euro 2020.

That has led to a section of Welsh support questioning Ramsey’s commitment in playing for his country.

Caretaker boss Robert Page said when he named his squad for the fixtures against Belgium, Mexico and Tuesday’s clash with the Czechs: “I understand where the fans are coming from but if you’re injured, you’re injured.

“No-one will be more frustrated than Aaron right now.

“But I wouldn’t question his commitment, and whenever he plays he adds value to the team.”
