Unai Emery says he was not consulted before Aaron Ramsey quit Arsenal for Serie A giants Juventus.


The Welshman, who spent over a decade at the Emirates, decided to sign a deal with the Italian champions after he was told by the north London club that he won't be offered a new deal.


However, Emery, who was sacked months after Ramsey's move to Italy, says he had no say on the matter.


“The decisions were made by the club and Ramsey himself,” he told Tutto Juve.


“The player decided to leave and moved to a big team, which inevitably led him to another football.


“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 scored 64 goals for Arsenal in 369 games and he won three FA Cups during his spell with the north London side.
