Sergio Ramos has jokingly said that God supports Real Madrid and will guide the team to victory in the Club World Cup this evening.
Los Blancos take on San Lorenzo in Marrakech this evening as they aim to win their fourth trophy of the year. The Argentinean outfit is the Pope’s team, and Ramos was asked at a press conference if Real would need divine intervention to help them win.
The defender responded: “Real Madrid is the team of God, and that’s why we have to keep on giving victories to our fans. All Argentines live Football in a very nice way – but with or without the Pope, we will try to take the title. We feel that the environment here (in Morocco) is like home. We’ve noticed the presence of the fans here as if we were at home.”
With or without God on their side, Ramos said he hopes the players can lift the trophy and continue to mark a golden era for the club.
“I hope we can mark an era. Whether it is or not, it’s a time that will be marked by titles and records. We live in a splendid and unique time. We are all very happy with Ancelotti, who is a very important part of what we’re achieving. Time will eventually tell what we have achieved,” he commented.
