Aaron Ramsey curse: Fans react to two world class British talents dying as Arsenal star scores twice in one week

This week has brought about the return of the mythical Aaron Ramsey curse after both David Bowie and Alan Rickman have passed away within 24 hours of the Welsh international finding the net.

Following in a bizarre chain of famous deaths after Ramsey scores, the midfielder, who had previously been made aware of the stories, must be worried that this unwanted reputation is now becoming a well known phenomenon.

In a 2015 Bleacher Report interview, Ramsey was quizzed on the story, admitted that he knew of the record, but didn’t find it amusing as the snippet below reveals.


Many fans, pundits and official channels have since taken to Twitter to react to this event in the wake of actor Alan Rickman passing away, and even we can’t deny that the case is growing ever stronger.
