Opta Sports is one of the best sources for in-depth, overlooked, and downright obscure soccer stats. Their network of correspondents tweet nuggets of information about players and teams around the globe and cap them with a one-word summary.
English football statkeeper @OptaJoe dug deep into the database for this Aaron Ramsey tidbit:
If you’re familiar with Scott Parker’s affinity for turns, you know that this is no April Fool’s stat. Even more impressive is the fact that the Welsh international has only appeared in 21 of Arsenal’s 27 league matches. So add “Aaron Ramsey pirouettes” to your Arsenal-Liverpool drinking game this Saturday. You might be sorry.
The video below shows that Ramsey has what it takes to break the record. Dizzying.
