The defender who once dominated the European stage is leaving the club.
“Sergio Ramos, 37, is leaving the club,” the official Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) channel announced on Wednesday. We thank him for his commitment.” PSG President Nasser Al-Khelaifi said: “Ramos’ leadership and professionalism, coupled with his top-class performances, have made him a football legend. It has been an honor to have him at PSG. The club wishes him all the best.”
During his time at Real Madrid, Ramos was considered one of the best defenders in the world, with a world-class defensive record and a devastating attacking ability for a center-back. In 671 games for Real Madrid, he scored 101 goals and provided 40 assists. He was a key part of the team’s rise to the top of the UEFA Champions League, Spanish La Liga, and FIFA Club World Cup. With the Spanish national team, he won one FIFA World Cup and two UEFA Euros.
In 2021, he took on a new challenge. He left Real Madrid after 16 years and joined PSG as a free agent. He signed Lionel Messi (35), Ramos, and Gianluigi Donnarumma (24) to help PSG win the club’s first UCL title.
However, Ramos’ time at PSG was not smooth sailing. He missed his first season with calf and muscle injuries. In 2021-22, Ramos played just 13 games for PSG.
In his second season, he increased his playing time somewhat. In total, he played 44 games, protecting the PSG backline. In the French Ligue 1, he scored one goal and provided one assist in 32 games. However, PSG failed to return to the top of the UCL, which was the club’s goal. After two seasons, Ramos’ contract was up and he opted to part ways.안전놀이터
PSG will now embark on a major reorganization. Head coach Christophe Galtier confirmed the parting of ways with Messi in a recent interview. Ramos’ contract expiration was announced by the club itself. According to British outlet 90min, PSG will rebuild its squad with a focus on younger players.
According to the media, Ramos’ next destination could be Saudi Arabia’s Al Nasr, home to Cristiano Ronaldo (37).
