During a recent Q&A session on the UEFA Champions League's official Facebook page, Aaron Ramsey was asked who the toughest opponent he has faced during his career was.

The Arsenal midfielder has gone head-to-head with the likes of Bastian Schweinsteiger, Yaya Toure and Xabi Alonso during his time as a footballer, but the Welshman's choice comes as quite a surprise.

The Gunners star chose former Tottenham Hotspur and England midfielder Scott Parker as his most difficult adversary.

He told fans: "Scott Parker was definitely the toughest opponent that I have played against.

"He doesn't give you a moment's rest on the ball and is always kicking away at your ankles or tackling you or whatever so he is definitely the toughest opponent I've played against."

Ramsey's choice definitely comes from left-field. However, the Fulham midfielder was renowned for his all-action style of play in the centre of the park.


The former Cardiff City man is currently on the sidelines having injured his hamstring in the 2-0 win over Bayern Munich.

Having recovered from a slow start to the season, Ramsey was back among the goals against Watford and another hamstring problem is a huge setback.

This is the fifth time he has suffered the same problem since July 2014 and the regular occurrence will be a concern to all involved at Arsenal.

He undoubtedly has the quality, but Ramsey appears to be yet another Gunners star whose career is blighted by injuries.
