Giorgio Chiellini has come out to say that Sergio Ramos is the best defender in the world.
Cheillini recently revealed that the Spaniard’s hard-nosed attitude which came to play when he injured Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah in the 2018 Champions League final makes him stand out as a CB.
According to him, critics might say the Real Madrid defender is impulsive and not tactical but he is a technical footballer who can play as a striker.
He added that Ramos knows how to be decisive in important games and he makes interventions beyond any logic despite his many injuries.
His words, “Critics can say that he is impulsive, not tactical at all and that because of him there are eight or 10 extra goals conceded a season,”
“If I caused an extra two or three goals, I wouldn’t live anymore.
“He is very technical and could be a striker, we are opposites. However, he has two characteristics almost no-one has.
“The first is knowing how to be decisive in important games. He makes interventions beyond any logic, even with injuries that he causes with almost diabolical cunning.
“Salah’s was a masterstroke. He always said that he didn’t mean to injury him, but he was aware that falling that way and without letting go of his grip, nine times out of 10 you can break your rival’s arm.
“The second is the force he transmits with his presence. Without him, stars like Raphael Varane, Dani Carvajal and Marcelo seem like kids from the Primavera team. Without him, Madrid becomes defenceless.”
