After a new goal of Sergio Ramos in the last minutes in the fifteenth match in the regular season against Deportivo, many Real Madrid supporters are thinking that the Andalusian full back has been one of the best Real Madrid signings in the history.
When Real Madrid decided on the last day of the summer transfer market of 2005 sign for an huge amount of €27M for a young player, the people had many doubts with this signing thinking that is a way to waste money on a young player who almost had no experience in the La Liga. Elevens seasons later, after almost 500 matches with the white shirt, the Andalusian defender is already part of the history of white entity.
Yesterday, he scored again in the last minutes and gave the victory to Los Blancos. With this goal Real Madrid can maintain the distance of six points respect Barcelona in the top of the table. Yesterday’s goals was not a coincidence, he has score in the last minutes several times and this can not be a coincidence. Ramos scored in the minute 93 against Atletico in the Champions League Final at Lisbon. He did the same in the last European Super Cup against Sevilla or in the last “Clásico” that finished 1-1.
This is the eleventh year of Sergio Ramos at Madrid and he played 492 games with the white shirt. He is the capture and the soul of the team, as Zidane said in the press conference after the match Deportivo. We can say that Sergio Ramos has been one of the best signings in Real Madrid history. He has several defect and he sometimes make several defensive mistakes, but the great leader he is and the number of important goals he has scored, make the €27M that Real Madrid payed 11 years ago look cheap.
