People still think Aaron Ramsey is cursed after Bowie’s death

The death of David Bowie has, obviously, shocked us all.

The music legend passed away after a long fight with cancer on Sunday at the age of 69.

But it’s not stopped some people linking his death to football’s most famously cursed player – Aaron Ramsey.


The Arsenal star has gained an unwanted reputation for scoring the day before a high profile figure’s death – and Bowie’s is just the latest in an increasingly long and bizarre list.

His hitlist stretches as far back as 2011, when he scored prior to Osama bin Laden’s death.

And it continued, with Ramsey being the ‘Angel of Death’ before Whitney Houston, Paul Walker, Steve Jobs and Robin Williams’ passing.

Ramsey actually addressed the bizarre ‘trend’ in August last year, when he said: “The most ridiculous rumour I’ve heard is that people die after I score.

“There have been loads of occasions where I’ve scored and somebody has died.

“That’s just a crazy rumour. Although I took out some baddies!”

Incredibly, people are still linking the two – but it’s a little bit too soon don’t you reckon?
