At the age of 19, Sergio Ramos signed for Real Madrid with a price tag of €27 million becoming the 1st Spanish player that Fiorentino Perez secured since being appointed as the Real Madrid President.
It has been over 10 years since Ramos made his debut a professional level as he started off his career at Sevilla before making his move to Real Madrid and despite having to play and work at such a consistent and high level each week, the Spanish defender insisted in saying that he loves each day that passes and he still envisions himself having the same dreams he had when he was younger.
“What remains of the kid at Sevilla is the same dream of always wanting to win. I still have that today,” he told Marca.
“I wake up every day with a smile and, in that sense; I feel the same as I did when I arrived at Real Madrid in 2005. Then, I was a boy who came to conquer the world and looked forward to achieving great goals. Today, I’ve achieved many of them. The 10 years have gone by very quickly because I have enjoyed it. I wake up every day with tremendous enthusiasm.”
The former Sevilla player had special praise when talking about Carlo Ancelotti as he considers the former coach of Ac.Milan to be the right man in charge of Real Madrid.
“We’ve already had our time with Mourinho, when we had some good times and bad.
“Ancelotti is someone widely revered for his CV, for everything he’s won and his knowledge of the game. He was also a pro so can put himself in a player’s shoes. In that respect, he creates a lot of chemistry and has a very good relationship with the squad. I think we can learn a great deal from him this season and have a successful year.” Ramos responded when he was questioned about the arrival and appointment of Ancelotti as the replacement of Jose Mourinho.
