An incredible compilation of Sergio Ramos’ 16 year career at Real Madrid has emerged – proving he is one of the greatest central defenders of all time.
It was announced on Wednesday that Ramos will be leaving ‘Los Blancos’ and an official farewell will take place on Thursday.
Madrid fans have paid tribute to their captain throughout the evening and the best so far has come from @MadridistatvYT on Twitter.
The video, titled ‘Thank you for everything Sergio Ramos’, chronicles his entire career since arriving from Sevilla in 2005.
Thank you for everything, @SergioRamos! 🤍

Ramos arrived at the Santiago Bernabeu as a 19-year-old full-back and while talented, he lacked the physicality and mentality we all know him for nowadays.
He would eventually become a central defender and key figure in the team, making 671 appearances.
The 35-year-old lifted 22 major honours during his time in the Spanish capital, including five La Liga titles and four Champions Leagues.
Ramos has also won two European Championships and a World Cup with Spain
A personification of ‘elite mentality,’ Ramos has solidified himself as a modern day GOAT.
