JUVENTUS midfielder Aaron Ramsey has been slammed by the Italian press after picking up another injury following the international break.
The 30-year-old is a major doubt to feature against Lazio after boss Massimiliano Allegri announced he is not fully fit.

Speaking on Friday, Allegri said: “I have to evaluate him, yesterday he had a flexor problem and we’ll see if he can be available tomorrow.
“He’s had a few problems with injuries at Juventus. He returned to training last week and played with the national team.
“Today, I will see who is available to travel to Rome.”
Ramsey has appeared in just three Serie A games this term due to a number of niggles, with his last league outing coming on September 26.
But he gave Old Lady fans hope he could be set to feature over the coming weeks after starring for Wales in their recent World Cup qualifiers.
He even scored twice in the 5-1 win against Belarus as the Dragons secured a play-off spot for next year’s tournament.

But news of his latest injury has infuriated Italian media, with Tuttosport running an article titled, ‘Are you kidding us?’
In the piece, the news outlet states how the Arsenal icon has different priorities when it comes to playing for his club and country.
They claim how Ramsey grits his teeth and fights through the pain for Wales, but doesn’t have the same passion when it comes to Juve.
His future in Turin is in question, with it said that Juventus are working on terminating his contract.
His former Gunners team-mate Theo Walcott has declared that Ramsey would ‘love’ to return to the Premier League in 2022.
Speaking on talkSPORT earlier in the week, he remarked: “I’ll find out, give him a call and pester him (on if he’s returning to the Premier League).
“Do you know what, it would be lovely, it would be fantastic if he came back to the Premier League. I feel like he would want to.
“Some part of me in my head thinks that he would love to come back to Arsenal. It does. Something about that would sort of tick a box.”

Walcott added: “It’s one of those things, he’s at Juventus and he played very well for Wales last night and it’s good to see.
“A lot of people have been on his back in Italy, which I haven’t seen a lot or enough of it to comment on that.
“But he’s a leader. He’s a workhorse. Still playing for his country and has all these caps.”
