Ex Spain midfielder, Luis Garcia has come out to say that the country will miss Sergio Ramos at Euro 2020. He, however, admitted that it would have been risky for coach Luis Enrique to select him for the tournament.
According to him, Ramos clearly struggled in the last stages of La Liga last season, and Spain needs 120 per cent off every player at the competition.
He added that Sergio remains a brilliant player and leader for the country, but his fitness is currently doubtful.
His words, “With Sergio Ramos, we have our doubts because he struggled in the last stages of La Liga,”
“It’s true that he’s a leader, he’s the captain of the national team for many years and when he was needed he always stood up and proved what an amazing player he is. He gave confidence to the players near him.”
“I think at this stage, you are going to need 120 per cent off every player. With the Covid-19 situation, with the travelling, there are a lot of things happening and if you arrive into the tournament and you are not in your best shape, there is always going to be a doubt.”
“To bring in a player who might have an injury in the first game, or even in training, like happened with Sergio Ramos, it is a little bit risky.”
“Yes, we are going to miss him, but Luis Enrique will have thought about that a lot. He is a coach who is always going to be honest with the players, who tries to find the players who are performing the best, and that is what he decided to bring in Eric Garcia, Laporte, Pau Torres and Diego Llorente.”
“It is important to see the players who have experience too, like [Sergio] Busquets and Thiago [Alcantara]. They have played at the highest level, they have won tournaments, and they know how to pass that experience on to the young players.”
“Pedri I think is one of the players we are all looking forward to seeing, to seeing how he develops in the next years. I think he’s an amazing player who can bring something different to the national team and to Barcelona.”
