Aaron Ramsey scores, then a famous celebrity dies. This is a pattern that he reoccurred multiple times during the Welshman’s Arsenal career.
Terrorist Osama bin Laden died on May 2nd 2011 – the day after Ramsey scored against Manchester United at the Emirates Stadium.
Later in 2011, Ramsey scored again – on October 2nd. On this occasion, Tottenham Hotspur were the opposition at White Hart Lane. Less than 72 hours later, Apple guru Steve Jobs passed away.
Colonel Muammar Gaddafi was Ramsey’s next victim. He died 24 hours after the former Cardiff midfielder had struck against Marseille in the Champions League.
Other famous people to die shorty after Ramsey goals include Whitney Houston, Paul Walker and Robin Williams.

Ramsey was asked about this weird coincidence in a recent interview.
He laughed it off, but seemed pretty proud to have ‘taken out some baddies’, presumeably refering to Bin Laden and Gaddafi.
“The most ridiculous rumour I’ve heard is that people die after I score,” 24-year-old Ramsey told Sport magazine. “There have been loads of occasions where I’ve scored and somebody has died.
“It’s just a crazy rumour. Although I took out some baddies!”
