- Varane spoke about his role at the club
- He talks about his future at Real Madrid and leadership
Raphael Varane and Sergio Ramos have formed a formidable partnership in defense for many years. But many Madridistas see them as totally different players. Ramos is one of the best captains in Real Madrid history, but can Raphael Varane, who is only 27, become one too?
Varane has spoken about his future, leadership and his partnership with Ramos in an interview with BeIN Sports.
“For the future, it’s difficult to plan. Real Madrid is a very, very big club with great players. What is important is that everyone plays their part in the team.”
“When we won our titles, our Champions Leagues, it was as a team, with eleven leaders on the pitch each time.”
“Sergio is a legend in Madrid. The future for the moment I do not project about it, but for sure Ramos is a very important player for us.”
“What is certain is that we are very complementary with Sergio Ramos, in our way of playing.” We have qualities that complement each other perfectly. We have been playing together for several years, so we know each other very well.”
“In defense, it works in pairs and this understanding is very important. For the future, after the departure of Ramos, it is difficult to project yourself.”
“I am a leader in my own way. With my teammates, I talk a lot before matches about tactics and positioning. We each have our own way.”
Varane will have more leadership duties once Sergio Ramos retires, but does he have the qualities to replace Ramos? During his time here he has shown that he has many leadership values, we must not forget that Sergio Ramos also became the leader he is today in his later years at Real Madrid. Varane is 27 years old and already one of the veterans at the club, so it wouldn’t be surprising to see him step up and be a great captain in the future.
