Aaron Ramsey and Thierry Henry Upstaged by Gedion Zelalem in Basketball Clash

Mark PattersonUK Staff WriterJuly 25, 2014

Arsenal's pre-season visit to New York saw former star Thierry Henry take on Aaron Ramsey in a basketball challenge at a fan event—only for teenager Gedion Zelalem to upstage them both.

Ramsey, as you can see in the video above, tried a shot from downtown. Suffice to say, the camera doesn't bother to follow the ball.

Henry is next to go but eventually decides to pass the chance to Zelalem.

A wise choice.

Zelalem, 17, is highly rated on the football pitch, but it looks as if his skills extend well beyond the grass.
