Child tells Martin Odegaard he doesn't want to be footballer in case Sergio Ramos breaks his leg

Hilarious

Sergio Ramos, rightly or wrongly, has something of a reputation. And while we're not aware of him ever breaking anyone's leg during his illustrious career, it doesn't stop some from thinking he's capable... just as Martin Odegaard discovered when hosting a Q&A with some of Arsenal's young fans.

The Norwegian, loaned to Arsenal from Real Madrid last month, answered questions from pupils from Torriano Primary School in north London.

The questions - which can all be seen in the video below - were, erm, quite diverse, but the best of the lot came towards the end, as Odegaard asked the childrens what they hoped to be when they grew up.

Reaching Yahya and his brother (around the 5:52 minute mark), Odegaard was told by one of the youngsters that he'd decided to pursue a career as an architect after being put off a career in football by the thought of Ramos-inflicted injury.

"I want to be an architect when I grow up," he told Odegaard. "I don't want to be a footballer because I'm scared that I might meet Sergio Ramos ad he might break my leg!"

Odegaard handles it pretty well, explaining that he understands.

"Injuries are part of football," he says.
