Juventus outcast Ramsey voted biggest flop in Serie A

by | Jan 13, 2022 17:17

Juventus midfielder Aaron Ramsey has won the Calcio Bidone award as the biggest flop in Serie A, beating Lazio striker Vedat Muriqi and another Bianconeri player, Arthur Melo.

The award is held every year in Italy to celebrate the ultimate Bidone – player you’d like to put in the bin – who is not so much the worst as the most disappointing.

Ramsey was a free agent from Arsenal in 2019, but while he always did struggle with injuries, this season has been even less eventful with just 112 minutes of football for his club.

The Wales international was top of the Calcio Bidone charts with 2,686 votes, only very narrowly beating Lazio centre-forward Muriqi, who had 2,567 votes.

Kosovo international Muriqi cost €20m to sign from Fenerbahce in September 2020 and has managed only two goals in 48 games for Lazio.

He is so dismal that when Ciro Immobile is injured, Maurizio Sarri has been using Pedro or Felipe Anderson as a False 9 rather than risk starting Muriqi upfront.

Juventus dominate the podium, though, as Arthur Melo takes third place with 1,794 votes as the biggest flop in Serie A.

This is largely because the Brazilian was given a transfer value of €76m plus bonuses when arriving from Barcelona as part of an exchange deal with Miralem Pjanic, yet has been absolutely anonymous in Turin and is now heading towards Arsenal on loan.

    Happy for Aaron! Can we have an award ceremony including speeches please?

  3. Rosario

    He is on £325K a week 😂

  4. The soup nazi

    Exactly Rosario – i wouldn’t mind been called a flop if I was on that kind of money.

    1. He spoke badly about the club, 2. Was not available most of the time, 3. Huge wages, 4. Taking forever to leave and not one fan of his remains. I mean we are half way into January and Ramsey is still a Juventus player somehow.

  6. LORD ALLEGRI PATRON SAINT OF SLOW BALL

    Yet another record for Rube that can go with Serie b and there 26 year drought with the CL.

  7. gio

    For about the benign ponytail muriqi

    If Newcastrol GTX are dumb enough to pay 30m for Wood, then surely Juve should be on the phone to them to see how much they’d be willing to pay for this disaster.

  9. NOrata

    Unashamedly a tic. It’s not just his endless injuries and low desire but it’s his whole demeanour that stinks. He’s been nothing short of a parasite at Juve. A fatberg clogging the arteries of the club. Hopefully we can offload ASAP.
