Legendary status earned by John Charles in Turin is proof that the Welsh playmaker can still make up for time lost at Arsenal
There may be no second acts in American lives, as F Scott Fitzgerald once claimed, but a footballer can sometimes stretch to a third. Aaron Ramsey’s first act opened in 2007, when he made his debut for Cardiff City at the age of 16, as the club’s youngest ever player. His second began in the summer of 2008, when he signed with Arsenal for £4.8m. This summer’s anticipated move will give him the chance, at 28, to make another new beginning.
Midway through his second season in north London he was looking like one of Arsène Wenger’s better ideas, when a challenge from Stoke City’s Ryan Shawcross broke the tibia and fibula of his right leg. His recovery and rehabilitation, involving loans to Championship clubs while regaining his fitness, cost him a year.
