Juventus midfielder Aaron Ramsey worries about getting fat in lockdown due to his biscuit obsession

Wales and Juventus star Aaron Ramsey has admitted he is worried about getting fat during the coronavirus lockdown because of his biscuit obsession.

The 29-year-old midfielder is in Italy, where it has recently been announced that their lockdown will be extended until early May in order to avoid a second wave of the virus that has decimated the country.

‘I’ve been doing the programmes the club have sent over, keeping fit most days.’ he said.

‘But it’s not the same as training or playing games where you don’t have any worries about putting on weight.

‘It’s difficult because my wife likes to cook and I like to eat so it’s not a good combination. When I am back at it I am pretty strict but it’s difficult at the moment.

‘I’ve got all the kids biscuits and I’m just raiding that every time I go for a cup of tea!

‘Hopefully we get out of this as soon as possible and get back to normal because it’s difficult.’

Ramsey was in the best form of his Juventus career before Serie A was suspended, scoring in his last two league appearances. 

The former Arsenal midfielder is one of many players across the globe trying to keep themselves fit and entertained from home.
