Ramos has once again took his price up0
The defender of Real Madrid Sergio Ramos once again turned the saga with his possible departure, but remains in the club.
Initially, the Spanish central defender broke out in a scandal with the club president Florentino Perez. The latter blamed of the 33-year-old player for the defeat of the Amsterdam Ajax in the 1/8 finals of the Champions League. Then the Madrid club won away 1:2, but within the walls of his native Santiago Bernabéu lost 1:4. According to media reports, after the match, Perez went into the locker room and began to scold the players. Ramos responded to this in a very tough form, “Pay me and I will leave.”
After that, Los Blancos barely finished the season. In the 12 remaining matches of Primera Real got six wins, twice drew and lost four times already under the leadership of Zinedine Zidane. In the last four matches of the season, Real Madrid won only against Villarreal, losing to Betis, Real Sociedad and Rayo Vallecano.
The main culprits of this fiasco were the defenders and goalkeepers, who did not have clearly defined roles during the season. The capital team missed more in the championship than Barcelona. Atletico, Valencia and even Getafe with Athletic Bilbao.
Returning to the subject of Ramos, the club should refresh the team, despite how much time and money it will take. From season to season, Sergio does not look younger and more often makes positional errors. However, without him, a couple of Nacho - Varan are not even capable of not missing out on the outsider of the championship. Ramos received an offer from China, which would obviously be enough to buy one or two high-quality and promising defenders. Another thing would be enough experience Zinedine Zidane to build a team defense, as in his time before he did Carlo Ancelotti.
The departure of Ramos would provoke a revolution in the team. On the one hand, Real would lose the captain and leader, but on the other, he would have the opportunity to make a qualitative leap. The fact that Ramos remained in the team is the cowardice of the president and the fear of breaking the ground floor of the former penthouse in the hope that it can still be repaired.
