In the Barclays Premiere League match played between Arsenal and Stoke City on Sat 27th Feb, Arsenal Midfielder Aaron Ramsey was severely hurt in a terrible challenge by Ryan Shawcross of Stoke City.
19 year old Aaron Ramsey was seen writhing in pain on the ground after a terrible terrible challenge by Ryan Shawcross. Shawcross was immediately shown a red card and was sent off the field. He himself was in tears, when he saw the extent of damage caused by his foul. Even the team players were seen with tears in their eyes as everyone is aware of the damage that could have been caused to Ramsey, who’s all of 19 years. No one wants a career threatening injury at that age.
Ramsey’s team-mate Eduardo suffered almost a similar injury at Birmingham two years back. the injury kept him out of the game for almost two years.
Arsenal won the game 3-1. This also ended Stoke City’s 11 games unbeaten run.
Ramsey has been transferred to London for now, for further care and diagnosis. It’s pretty obvious though that Ramsey will now miss the entire season and probably the next season as well. One just wishes him speedy recovery and a return back to competitive football soon.
