Real Madrid will host Atalanta Bergamo next week in the second leg of the knockout stages of the Champions League. Zinédine Zidane‘s men are confident, but doubt still hangs over the future of one of them. Indeed, the central defender Sergio Ramos, currently injured, has still not extended with the Merengue while his contract ends next June. In an interview with Amazon Prime, the 2010 world champion took stock of the situation, while paying tribute to another big name in world football.
Sergio Ramos grand fan de Zlatan Ibrahimovic
Sergio Ramos may be injured, he does not lose a crumb of football news. Real Madrid center-back paid homage to Zlatan Ibrahimovic: “I have a special affection and appreciation for Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Even though we are not in direct contact, you appreciate people for their careers. I have always thought he was a great player and a “killer” apart, thanks to everything he creates on and off the pitch. He is an example to all players. And this, although he was disconnected and changed his championship: he went to the United States and came back. He remains an example after suffering a serious injury. The fact that he wants to return to the national team is a source of motivation, not only for him but for everyone in football. This sport must always have the best present despite their age. I have always said it, there are no young or old players, there are good and bad and Zlatan is one of the good guys. “
A future at Real Madrid still unclear
The Spain international also spoke of his future at Real Madrid, still deadlocked a few months before the end of his contract. “I wish I could say something, but it’s nothing new. Still, I would like to, said Sergio Ramos. I thought I would come back from injury and finish the season in the best possible way, and fight for new headlines. There is nothing new about a contract extension. So I cannot comment. I would like to continue. When I hear something new, I will be the first to communicate on the subject. But today ‘Yeah, I’m calm. I’m concentrating on my game, getting back on the pitch and the trophies up for grabs, in order to end the year well. “
