Aaron Ramsey had plenty of options to choose from when asked to name his favourite goal, but ultimately plumped for his stupendous 35-yard strike against Galatasaray in the .
Arsenal’s most prolific goalscoring midfielder of all-time registered two winning strikes against Hull City and during his time in north London.
But when asked by his former Gunners teammate and current Juventus colleague Wojciech Szczesny which was his best goal, the Wales international had no hesitation making his mind up.
Ramsey’s scorcher came in a European dead rubber against the Turkish side back in December 2014. The ball was cleared following Joel Campbell’s corner and without any hesitation, fired an unstoppable half-volley into the top corner.
The Welshman celebrated nonchalantly, while at the other end of the field replays captured Szczesny’s disbelief with the goalkeeper stood with his hands on top of his head.
Recalling the incident, Szczesny told the : ‘He (Ramsey) scored one weird goal at Galatasaray where he’s tried to clear it. We had a corner kick, the ball’s come out and he’s like the last man.
‘He doesn’t want to counter attack so he tries to clear it with his left foot and it just goes in the top corner.’
‘That was my best goal, have a look at Wojciech’s reaction,’ added Ramsey, before Szczesny added: ‘The video from behind, he shoots and it goes in the top corner with his left foot and I’m like ‘what’. It shows how much confidence I have in you.’
