He cam back from quarantine with a beard and the intention to lead Real Madrid to a La Liga title. At 34 years old, Los Blancos captain Sergio Ramos is having a great season, one of his best.
Sergio Ramos is already a Real Madrid legend. With 644 matches, 94 goals and 22 trophies, his status at the club is undisputable. This season, he has been incredible. From breaking goalscoring records to immaculate defensive performances, Sergio Ramos has done it all.
Ramos has broken the record for the top-scoring defender in La Liga, equalling and surpassing Koeman since La Liga resumed. Hard work during quarantine has paid off for Ramos, at 34 years old he is now in incredible physical shape. He has scored in 3 out of 4 last matches for Real Madrid, one of those being a beautiful freekick goal against Mallorca.
One of the biggest reasons Real Madrid are top of La Liga is their defense. Led by Sergio Ramos, Real Madrid have allowed only 21 goals in 31 games and have the best defense in La Liga.
Contribution in offense and defense are nothing compared to his best trait: Leadership. Sergio Ramos is the perfect captain, something that he has proven since he inherited the captain’s armband from Iker Casillas. This season, the team needed his leadership more than ever, and the captain as always has delivered. In training and on the field, Ramos leads by example and is one of the hardest workers in the team.
When the La Liga campaign resumed, Real Madrid were trailing Barcelona but now they are the leaders. A lot of credit for that goes to Sergio Ramos who has been incredible in the last 4 games.
Sergio Ramos’ contract will expire next year. Real Madrid don’t give retirement contracts, but if there’s anyone that deserves that – it’s Sergio Ramos. Neither the club nor the player are in a hurry to enter negotiations, and both parties are confident that an agreement will be reached after La Liga season is over.
