‘Ramos is one of the greatest center backs to ever play the game, with his quick feet from his full-back background allowing him to cover a lot of ground, his technical ability allowing him to transition smoothly into the attack, and his accurate kicking allowing him to play long passes forward to set up Real Madrid’s late build-ups. He is also a good leader, which is why he has consistently captained the team.
He spent his youth career at Sevilla, where he shared the left and right fullback positions with his best friend Anthony Puerta. In the 2004/05 season, he became a regular starter and performed quite well. After that, Ramos and Puerta were both offered by Real Madrid at the same time, but Ramos left and Puerta stayed.
He moved to Real and made history as a Real legend. In 16 seasons as a starter, he scored 101 goals in 671 appearances, showing everything a defender can do.
He also lifted a total of 22 trophies, including La Liga (5), Champions League (4), Spanish Super Cup (4), Club World Cup (4), European Super Cup (3), and Copa del Rey (2). He has shown why he is one of the best defensive players in the world, with clutch performances whenever it matters.
In the 2021/22 season, he moved to Paris Saint-Germain, where he was virtually unrecognizable. He looked good when he came on, but was limited by endless injuries. In the 2021/22 season, he made only 13 appearances and was criticized. In the 2022/23 season, he was a regular starter and showed good form, but his departure was confirmed and many clubs were chasing him.
In the summer transfer window, several Saudi clubs made offers and it was also reported that Inter Miami CF had entered negotiations with Ramos. By mid-August, however, he hadn’t found a team, with Turkkiye’s Besiktas and Galatasaray also interested in him, but he turned them down.
Then, on September 3, news broke that he had rejected a final offer from Saudi Arabia and was moving to his hometown club Sevilla. Romano’s return to his hometown club was virtually confirmed by Here we go.
In the end, Sevilla announced on the club’s website on May 5 (KST), “Sevilla FC and Sergio Ramos have agreed on Ramos’ return to Sevilla. The academy center back returns to his hometown almost 20 years after leaving for Real Madrid at the age of 19.
Ramos, who won numerous domestic and continental trophies during his 16-year career in Madrid, will face his former teammates for the first time in a Sevilla shirt on Saturday.
However, Carrasco believes Ramos will refrain from celebrating even if he does get on the score sheet. “I don’t think he will celebrate. He’s from Seville, he grew up here, but his two homes are Seville and Real Madrid,” he told Radio Marca.
Ancelotti’s opinion was different: “I obviously have a special affection for him, so I like to see him and say hello. If I’m here today, it’s because of Ramos, above all. If he hadn’t scored the goal in the final, I probably wouldn’t be here.”
“For this and everything he has done for this club, everyone likes him very much, especially me. I’m sure he’ll have a great game, and then if he scores a goal, hopefully, he can do whatever he wants.”
