Aaron Ramsey has still not returned to his club Nice, almost a month after Wales were eliminated from the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

The Arsenal icon joined the French club in the summer after his contract with Juventus was terminated and headed to the Middle East in early November as part of Rob Page’s 26-man squad.

Ramsey has been a key part of the Wales national team since his debut in 2008, but was soon forgotten when his country fell in the group stage.

After a decent 1-1 draw with the USA, Wales lost to Iran late on before being beaten by rivals England to finish the final as the only team not to score from open play.

While very few players came out of their three games with much credibility, Ramsey’s performance has come under intense scrutiny and marked a rapid decline for a player who was once so influential under Arsene Wenger.

Given their early departure, the Welsh players returned to their clubs just weeks after leaving for Qatar, but it has been revealed that Ramsey has yet to sign up for Nice.

“No, he hasn’t come back,” Nice manager Lucien Favre said at his pre-game press conference on Tuesday as the club prepared for Thursday’s Ligue 1 return against Lens. News reporter.

“I think the World Cup was hard for him to digest. We’ll see.

“He was very disappointed with the World Cup. He is taking time to really recover.”

England’s elimination of Wales took place on November 29, meaning Ramsey, who celebrated his 32nd birthday on Boxing Day, has now had exactly one month to recover from Qatar 2022.

It’s been a tough year for the midfielder, whose loan spell fell out of favor at Rangers when his missed penalty cost the Scottish side in the Europa League final in May.

Ramsey has started just five league games so far this season with just one goal and one assist.

He won three FA Cups with Arsenal before joining Juventus on a free transfer in 2019, where he won the Serie A title in his debut season.
