Ramsey Returns Home: Wales Captain Rejoins Cardiff City
Cardiff City, the Championship side, has confirmed that Aaron Ramsey, the Wales captain, will be rejoining his childhood club on a two-year contract. This announcement followed the mutual agreement between Ramsey and Nice, where he had been playing since August of the previous year.
Having made 34 appearances and scored one goal during his time at the French club, the 32-year-old midfielder and former Arsenal player expressed his excitement about returning to Cardiff, where he made his debut in the first team at the age of 16 in 2007. Ramsey had initially moved to Arsenal just a year later.
In a statement, Ramsey conveyed his joy at the prospect of coming back to his roots, saying, "It feels incredible to finally return here. I always envisioned this moment, and now it's the perfect opportunity to make it happen." He also expressed his eagerness to contribute to the team's aspirations and achieve their collective goals.
Ramsey, who is fluent in Welsh, made history as the youngest-ever captain of the Wales national side at the age of 20 in 2011. He has accumulated 82 international caps and was a key player in Wales' Euro 2016 semi-final run and their participation in the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
