Sergio Ramos: Good enough? Fit enough to retire at Real Madrid


Florentino Perez has called for calm among Real Madrid supporters regarding the future of Sergio Ramos after the club secured the 34th La Liga title on Thursday night.

Los Blancos beat Villarreal 2-1 to clinch the league, and the club’s president is hopeful the centre-back will finish his career at the Santiago Bernabeu.

The Madrid captain was a key part of their road to ending Barcelona’s dominance, scoring five times in the previous 10 games to add a fifth league medal to his impressive career at the Spanish capital.

Ramos’ contract with the club runs until the end of the 2020/21 campaign and has reiterated on many occasions it will be an honour to finish his illustrious career at the Bernabeu, though he said it was dependent on the desire’s of Perez.

The Spain international has brushed aside recent rumours of a move away from the club to China, with the Madrid chief also keen on seeing the skipper close the chapter on his football career in the famous white shirt. “Ramos will surely end his career at Madrid,” Perez told Movistar. “Although there is talk of that, it will not change, everyone is calm. He is more than a captain. He has led the team with enormous leadership.”

Since the departure of Zinedine Zidane, the club have failed to match the quality of Barcelona in the domestic league, but Perez expressed delight in seeing the Frenchman return the trophy back to the club.

The former Madrid midfielder was restored to his position as manager back in last March, after taking a break away from management for close to a year. Perez definitely knows how vital the gaffer is for the club despite not really being as convincing as the past seasons. “He has won a title every 19 games,” he said. “It is a blessing from heaven and that he is with us for a long time. They criticise him for what they want. We will continue to win titles.”

Consistency and strong mentality was the rationale behind the club winning all 10 of their games since returning from lockdown, per the observations of the club president. “We have trained well and we have had the mentality to return with the desire to win this title,” he added. “The strength we had has been seen by everyone. It will go down in Madrid’s history.”
