Sergio Ramos admitted Real Madrid will not give up in the fight for La Liga despite trailing Barcelona by two points with three matches remaining after their 2-3 win against Sevilla.
“We knew it was a life and death game, because playing at Sevilla is very complicated. We had to get three vital points to stay in the fight. I’m very happy with the team’s effort during the 90 minutes,” Ramos confessed.
“We will try to win everything. We can’t leave La Liga aside. It is complicated that Barcelona will drop points, but we have to keep fighting until the end. We will give everything in every game,” he added.
The Andalusian praised team-mate Cristiano Ronaldo, who scored a hat-trick: “Cristiano Ronaldo’s game depends very much on scoring and it’s very good news that he has scored three in this game.”
Asked about his mistake in one of Sevilla’s goals, Ramos said “these are things that happen in football, but you have to look at the good side of things and be optimistic.” “Not many teams have won at this stadium, in fact Sevilla were unbeaten here for the last 15 months,” he added.
Ramos played in midfield again, like he did against Atletico Madrid. Asked whether he will keep that role against Juventus in the Champions League, the defender explained “it depends on the coach.” “For me the important thing is to play at a good level, regardless of the position,” he concluded.
