Ramsdale, 23, joined the Owls’ bitter rivals Sheffield United as a 15-year-old following his release from Bolton in 2013. The Stoke-born star moved to Bournemouth for around £1million in 2017, although their relegation and the Blades’ Premier League solidarity meant he returned to Bramall Lane in 2020.
Having spent a total of five years in South Yorkshire, the star has close ties to the club’s fans and history. And after Wednesday conceded in the 93rd minute against Sunderland to go 2-1 behind on aggregate on Monday evening, the goalkeeper further strengthened his bond with fans of the Blades in the form of a mischievous tweet.
“Whoops,” Ramsdale tweeted along with a laughing emoji after Patrick Roberts scored from six yards out to send Black Cats fans into pandemonium. Understandably, Wednesday fans were incensed by the tweet having just lost out on a potential Championship place.
