Sergio Ramos could enjoy six more days on holidays and he came back to work last Sunday. The defender is the great captain of the team, respected by all the players and leading the ship together with Zinedine Zidane. Marcelo and Cristiano Ronaldo are the other captains after Pepe’s departure, but Sergio Ramos is the only boss in the dressing room.
We could see how important is Sergio Ramos in the squad in his arrival to the hotel in Los Angeles. Real Madrid TV showed how the defender greeted at every single player of the squad and welcomed Theo Hernández, the only new signing at the moment in the team.
Just after joining the group, Sergio Ramos started working on his own. The full back started with the physical training to be ready for the European Supercup against Manchester United at the beginning of August. The first friendly game of the season will be against the Red Devils on Saturday, but it’s quite unlikely that the Andalusian player could be ready.
With Sergio Ramos in the squad, Zinedine Zidane has 27 players to train with. The others still missing are Cristiano Ronaldo, who played the Confederations Cup, and the U-21 players -Dani Ceballos, Marco Asensio, Jesús Vallejo, Borja Mayoral and Marcos Llorente-, who will join the group during the weekend.
Sergio Ramos was one of the best players again last season. The defender is improving year by year, becoming a key footballer in Real Madrid history. He’s about to start his 13th season at the club, so he has the experience needed to boss the colleagues and help Zidane with the group.
Sergio Ramos performance last season was amazing. He scored 7 goals in La Liga, including the net at El Clásico, and we have to add two more in the Champions League, both against Napoli. Last year he scored a very important goal in the European Supercup against Sevilla, so hopefully he can be ready to play the first title of the year.
