Transfer Flashback: Gaston Ramirez

Transfer Flashback: Gaston Ramirez - Transfer Flashbacks

A move of mixed success, wasn’t it? Not many players are able to leave such a mixed perception of their time in Teesside as Gaston Ramirez did with such variety in his displays during the 18 months he was at Middlesborough.

Ramirez signed for Boro on loan from Southampton late into the January transfer window as the club was mid-way through fighting for promotion from the Championship. His arrival led many people to think the promotion was all but done and dusted already.

Ramirez had a remarkable few months at the Riverside as he contributed seven goals and four assists in 18 appearances for Boro that season. At the end of the campaign, Boro had finished second and got automatic promotion to the Premier League with Ramirez’s deal becoming a permanent one.

The following season, Boro’s first in the Premier League since 2008/09, they started brightly with Ramirez playing a key role in results over Stoke City, Leicester City and Hull City in particular.

However, in the January transfer window, Sky Sports News reported that he handed in a transfer request, which, obviously, was not well received by a lot of Boro fans.

Ramirez never did leave that January but since that moment, his effort was questioned by Boro fans among his final nine games for Boro. They were then relegated back to the Championship and Ramirez moved on to Sampdoria, which lots of Boro fans did back as a result of what had happened.
