Sergio Ramos’ life in Paris has gone from despair to some sense of normalcy.
After a year to forget, marked above all by his continual injuries, the former Real Madrid player has returned for what he hopes will be a stronger second seasonafter it was said that the French club wanted to get rid of him.
The Andalusian defender has established himself as a leader in the dressing room and has the confidence of PSG head coach Christophe Galtier. The coach, who landed in the French capital in July, protected him with a system of three centre-backs.
Ramos’ season is getting better and better and PSG have taken notice. The club improved defensively, and were boosted by Galtier’s new system. Last season, Ramos couldn’t even make his Champions League debut for PSG due to injury. He made his European debut against Juventus in midweek, where he proved solid. He contained Vlahovic and Milik, stretched the defensive line when needed and even showed character in a fight, taking on Paredes.
Invitation to the World Cup
Although there are still two months until the World Cup in Qatar, there is talk of Ramos for a call-up with La Roja. After more than a year of absence in the national team, the man from Camas dreams of receiving a call from Luis Enrique for what could be his last tournament in the national team. For now, he continues to play at a high level, being an important player for Galtier.
