Real Madrid have done an incredible season winning the double with La Liga, and the Champions League. This was a very difficult task, because Los Blancos had not won La Liga in the last five years and they are the first team who proclaims for second time in a row Champions League winners. Now it’s the moment to evaluate the performance of the players during the season 2016-2017.
Sergio Ramos has been a key player in the success of Real Madrid in this season. The Spanish defender has appeared once again in the most difficult moments of the season being the captain and the soul of the team.
Sergio Ramos started the year scoring another goal in the injury time (93rd minute) against Sevilla in the European Super Cup, showing that this was going to be one of his best seasons since his signing to Real Madrid eleven years ago. With the pass of the games, his level improved and we can say that he has been the best full back of the squad, having a lot of continuity and being a very important player in Zidane’s line up.
This season he has scored more goals than ever since his arrival to Real Madrid. He has scored seven goals in the regular season, two in Champions League (Last 16 Round against Napoli second leg), one in La Copa del Rey and one in the European Super Cup, adding a total of eleven goals. He has risen his first league as the captain of the team (in where he played 71% of the minutes) and he won his third Champions League with Los Blancos.
We can say that Sergio Ramos has been one of the best signings in Real Madrid history. He has several defects and he sometimes make some important mistakes in defense, but the great leader he is and the number of important goals he has scored, makes him in probably the best full back in all the world.
