Real Madrid lived the ‘Media Day’ on Tuesday with hundreds of journalists at Valdebebas, Los Blancos training ground. There were especially a lot of foreign journalists covering the previous days of the great final between Juventus and Real Madrid.
Apart from Zinedine Zidane, who highlighted the threat of Dybala, some other players spoke with the press. The captain, Sergio Ramos, was among them and he said some interesting things before the big clash. “I sent an invitation to Piqué, but he didn’t answer”, the player commented laughing.
Sergio Ramos affirmed that he wouldn’t kick a penalty in a Panenka style: “Not even crazy! And less to Buffon, who is an expert and he waits until the end. I try to travel to his mind and know what he thinks about me”.
The player arrives to the final in one of the best moments of his life: “The family and the children give you an emotional stability that allow you to play better on the pitch. The captain is a plus and you can enjoy more the victories. This is one of my best periods and hopefully it can last the years I have left in my contract”.
Sergio Ramos also spoke in this interview with the radio station COPE about the controversy Bale-Isco: “Having available all the squad is the best news for Real Madrid. It’s fucked for our coach because it will be tough to make a decision”.
According to the Real Madrid captain, the team arrived to the final in a very good moment: “We could celebrate La Liga and we had one week of training. These require two days for recovery because they were touch sessions. We arrive very very well physically and with everybody on board”.
The defender is very confidence about his team: “Juventus have a superb team, but we have to be confident and be convinced about what we want to achieve. We’re going to fight there”. Sergio Ramos spoke also about the similarities with Atlético Madrid: “These are two rivals that look a like a lot”.
