We are ready for a successful season, says Sergio Ramos


Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos has lamented the Spanish Supercopa loss to Atletico de Madrid but says the players will move on and go for other targets in their sights this season.

Los Blancos missed out on their second trophy of the season, going down 1-0 at the Vicente Calderon and 2-1 overall against their city rivals.

But speaking to journalists after the game, the central defender said some perspective needed to be added and the players could be proud of what they have achieved in recent months. Despite the loss to Diego Simeone’s side, Real have won the Copa del Rey, Champions League and European Super Cup in the past four months.

And Ramos said the team will work hard to achieve more trophy success this year.

“You have to congratulate your opponents and not take anything away from them. When one loses, everything is an excuse. Now we have to move on. It couldn’t be, but we are proud to have won the Champions League and the Copa del Rey and to play the European and Spanish Supercups. We have to carry on working. We are up for a successful season and we want the season to start,” he stated.

Explaining the loss on the night, Ramos said finals are decided by small details, and Los Colchoneros started the game quicker of the two.

“When you play for a title and lose it’s a shame. The first half saw us create good chances but final are decided by small details. They went ahead early and took the game where they wanted,” he added.
