Appreciating Sergio Ramos’ contribution to Real Madrid, but former coach Fabio Capello insisted the old club was right to part with the veteran centre-back.

“Age is a barrier for every player, and I’m not sure Ramos can start for Real right now,” Capello said. “I really like Ramos and helped him a lot. When I was in my second term at Real, he came here with wet feet.”

“Ramos contributed a lot to the glory of Real, this is undeniable. But perhaps at the age of 35, he should not ask for much,” Capello confirmed.

At the end of last season, midfielder Sergio Ramos left Real after the two sides could not agree on a contract extension. Ramos wanted to sign for two years and not lose much salary, while Real was concerned about his age and unstable form, so he only agreed to a one-season extension and a much lower salary than Ramos demanded.

Real completely have grounds to refuse Ramos’ request. Last season, he played only 21 games, and missed more than 30 games due to health-related problems, from injuries to Covid-19. He also played unsuccessfully in rare appearances, namely the Champions League semi-final loss to Chelsea 0-2.

Ramos joined Real from Sevilla in 2005. Over the past 16 years, the Spaniard has helped Real win four Champions Leagues and five La Ligas. He also scored 101 goals in 671 matches. Many of those goals are very important, such as the 1-1 equalizer, helping Real to win 4-1 in the 2014 Champions League final.

But according to Capello, Real does not need to be too worried when parting with a god like Ramos because there are still experienced names, especially the midfield trio Luka Modric – Toni Kroos – Casemiro. He said: “They are still the best midfielders in Europe. All three are not young, can’t play the whole game, but they are still quality, experienced players.”

Before Ramos, Real also bid farewell to another god, coach Zinedine Zidane. Regarding the case of colleagues and former students, Capello sympathized: “Zidane has achieved great achievements at Madrid. He won every trophy possible. But obviously when you no longer have confidence in the people around you. around, with the president, you can’t work there anymore.”

“I went through a similar situation at Milan. At that time the results were positive, but I felt uncomfortable, and then left to sign for Madrid, the first term,” the former Real and England coach shared. share more.
