Sergio Ramos is clearly taking a bit of time adjusting to life at Paris Saint-Germain.
The veteran defender joined PSG on a free transfer in the summer after a long and glorious stint as captain of Real Madrid.
And it seems he hasn’t quite got used to not having an armband on his left bicep.

“The best place to keep on dreaming, the best club to keep on winning,” he posted on social media.
“We’re going to fight with everything we have for everything. Allez.
“Paris Saint-Germain is a club that has already proven itself at the highest level. I want to continue to grow and improve at Paris and help the team to win as many trophies as possible.”
Ramos had attracted the interest of Premier League clubs including Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea.
But PSG pulled out all the stops to get their man with president Nasser Al-Khelaifi, sporting director Leonardo and Neymar on the charm offensive.

Ramos told L’Equipe: “Neymar convinced me before signing for PSG.
“Before signing for a new club, it is always helpful to talk with several players, or with Leonardo or Al-Khelaifi. They all convinced me in their own way.
“I’ve been talking to Neymar for six or seven years. Despite the fact he played for Barca and I played for Madrid, we have always had an extraordinary friendship.”
The video of Ramos in a PSG shirt was too much for some Real fans.
