Last year Ramires ended a six-year stay at Stamford Bridge to move to Jiangsu Suning in China having fallen out of favour at Chelsea.
Arriving in the summer of 2010, the Brazilian international gradually imposed himself with his strong running and tough tackling, scoring the club’s Goal of the Season in his first term. Ramires was a popular player for Chelsea amongst players and fans, he always worked hard and chipped in with the odd goal.
Ramires Record At Chelsea
He was a regular in the Chelsea side for multiple seasons and made 251 appearances for Chelsea, scoring 34 goals.
He won the Premier League, FA Cup, Champions League and Europa League as a Chelsea player, but if you ask about his crowning moment then it will be an against all odds victory in the Nou Camp that comes to mind.
We thought we would celebrate his trophy-laden career at Chelsea with a video of that Ramires goal v Barcelona that makes him immortal at Chelsea.
Ramires goal v Barcelona came as Chelsea had gone behind on the night, down to ten men and destined for defeat against a rampant Barcelona. Then in a moment, he turned the game on it’s head with a beautiful chip on a rare Chelsea counter attack set up by Frank Lampard.
Chelsea spent the entire second half clinging on, until the Torres breakaway goal with just moments left. Unfortunately despite scoring that Ramires goal v Barcelona he picked up a yellow card meaning he had to watch the miracle of Munich from the sidelines.
Ramires Goal v Barcelona
Here is the goal that will forever be etched into our minds when we think of Ramires, we wish him well in China. At 28 though we hope that he will find his way back to Europe and maybe even the Premier League in the future.
