Arsenal’s Aaron Ramsey breaks his silence on celebrity death curse…

Aaron Ramsey has finally spoken out about the surreal curse that followed him around a few years ago.

Famous figures such as Whitney Houston, Colonel Gaddafi and Osama Bin Laden all died within a day of Ramsey scoring a goal, but the midfielder dismissed the suggestion he caused the deaths as “just a crazy rumour”.

“The most ridiculous rumour I’ve heard is that people die after I score,” Ramsey told Sport Magazine, noting that the supposed curse had struck on “loads of occasions”.

“It’s just a crazy rumour. Although I took out some baddies,” he admitted.

Thankfully the Welsh international has seemingly lifted the curse, scoring so frequently in recent seasons that such a huge spate of celebrity deaths would give the game away.
