Super Eagles assistant coach, Joseph Yobo has come out to say that Sergio Ramos’ departure from Real Madrid will leave a huge void. He recently revealed that Ramos is undoubtedly one of the very best defenders in the game.
According to him, Ramos’ personality as a leader and the fact that Madrid youngsters no longer have an experienced player to learn from makes the exit more painful.
Yobo added that even if it is true that no one is irreplaceable, Real Madrid can never get another Ramos.
His words, “Ramos is already one of the best and unarguably the symbol of Real Madrid. For me, that is a big loss for the club.”
“Having someone like that who can still play not to talk of his personality as a leader, and knowing that young players could tap from his experience makes his departure more painful.”
“Sometimes, clubs consider the age and demands, but Ramos being able to play at least 50 percent of matches is a huge advantage for any club.”
“No one is irreplaceable, but you cannot get another Ramos for Real Madrid. It is almost impossible.”
On the contract saga, “They [Real Madrid] might be looking at the business side, but sometimes, this is where the player relationship with clubs go bad.”
“This is someone that has served the club consistently and very well for the past 16 years.”
“He has won several laurels for them and it’s very hard to see that he is asking for two years. Some players would have demanded more knowing their personality and who could offer at any point.”
“If this is not political, then I feel something went wrong somewhere because two years is not too much for a player of his calibre.”
“However, Ramos could be Real Madrid president or anything at the club in future because he is that kind of a person.”
“There are some players who are great on the field of play and outside they are not. Ramos seems to have a blend of both.”
