Aaron Ramsey yet to return to club side Nice after World Cup heartbreak with Wales
Aaron Ramsey has not returned to club side Nice since Wales’ World Cup exit, manager Lucien Favre has confirmed.
Favre said the former Arsenal and Juventus midfielder was finding it “hard to digest” his country’s failure to reach the knockout stages in Qatar.
Ramsey has not played since Wales’ final group game on 29 November – a 3-0 defeat by England.
Ramsey started in all three of Wales’ matches in Qatar – their first World Cup finals appearance since 1958.
They finished bottom of Group B after an opening draw against the USA was followed by losses to Iran and England.
He has been a regular in the Nice side since joining the French club as a free agent in August after his contract was terminated at Juventus, making 16 appearances in all competitions and playing in 12 of their 15 league matches, including 90 minutes in their final match before the World Cup break on 11 November.
Nice are due to return to action in Ligue 1 on Thursday when they host RC Lens.
