Sergio Ramos: “I Wouldn’t Touch Many things from the Squad”


Most of the players of Real Madrid are officially on holidays. On Sunday, the Spanish footballers played their last game of the season at Skopje against Macedonia, so now they can rest. Spain beat the rival (1-2) with Sergio Ramos, Dani Carvajal and Isco in the line-up. Morata, Nacho or Asensio were on the bench.

After the game, Sergio Ramos spoke with the journalists and he talked also about Real Madrid and the transfer window: “If I were involved, I’d touch very little. We have a very complete squad and if it’s working, why touching it?”, the captain said about possible transfers during the summer. He also spoke about Morata, who could join Manchester United: “We’ll see if Morata leaves. I have a special affection for him and I always wish him the best. It doesn’t depend on me if he stays”.

The defender wanted to analyze the season with Real Madrid: “Perhaps this was the best season in my career. I achieved the first double and this cheer me up to keep doing good things for the next season. My year has been historical”.

Sergio Ramos was asked about José Mourinho words, who said that Los Blancos didn’t arrive to the semi-finals of the Champions League until his arrival: “In the first years is true, because when he arrived we started going through the Last 16. He said the truth. If someone has doubts, they have to see my track record. […] In my career I learnt from every coach. One more and one less”.

Finally, Sergio Ramos spoke about the grades for the season just finished: “I’m always optimistic. I’d put myself a 9 as a grade [from 10]. It’s been a very good and positive season”.

Now, it’s time for him to rest. The players have one month of holidays before going back to Madrid to train for the next season. Sergio Ramos will travel with the rest of the team to the United States for the pre-season, before facing the first two titles of the year: the European Supercup and the Spanish Supercup.
