Unavailable for more than four months, Sergio Ramos could make his debut with Paris Saint-Germain this Sunday Saint-Etienne. The opportunity for the Spanish defender to reassure everyone and ease tensions in the capital.
Ramos with Al-Khelafi and Leonardo
Will Sergio Ramos (35) make his debut with Paris Saint-Germain Saint-Etienne this Sunday (1pm)? Remained on the bench against Manchester City (1-2) in midweek, the Spanish central defender is expected to replace Forez, but he could play his first minutes by coming into play. The end, perhaps, of long months expectations and tensions around the old Madrid.
The case of the Spaniard has created a big stir internally. Recruited free after a season spoiled by injuries at Real Madrid, and in particular a knee operation, the native of Camas had to wait more than four months to appear in the Parisian group due to recurring calf concerns. This long absence has made more than one doubtful within the club of the capital, creating tensions at all levels, according to L’Equipe.
From President Nasser Al-Khelafi to sporting director Leonardo, including medical staff and the player’s entourage, everyone has blamed themselves in the face of this interminable wait and doubts about Ramos’ ability to return to his best level. Internally, some have even considered a future contract termination if the situation does not improve quickly. We will not have arrived there. And the ex-Merengue will now have the opportunity to erase the doubts on the ground.
Ramos a dout
In the end, these are difficult times, times of loneliness, Ramos admitted in an interview with Prime Video. Hours in the gym, with the kin, the physical trainer … You have negative thoughts all the time that sometimes make you doubt. But I believed in myself and in my work all the time. I am focusing on giving the club back the confidence it has in me. I hope to reach my best level.
Now reassured and as determined as ever, the 2010 world champion looks ahead to the rest of his career. I think I can continue playing for another 4 or 5 years. The most important thing is that your head holds, because there are still many years. I hope not to have any more physical problems. In Paris, where Ramos is under contract until 2023, we hope so too.
