Sergio Ramos breaks down in tears as he bids farewell to Real Madrid

Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos, 35 Age, broke down in tears as he bid farewell to Real Madrid supporters during a press conference today, describing his departure from the club as the most difficult decision in his career.

Ramos played 671 games for the royal team and his name will remain written in golden letters in the history of the club, which led him to winning the Spanish championship five times and the Champions League four times.

Ramos decided to leave because there was no agreement with the club’s board of directors to renew his contract, which expires on June 30, and thus he will become a free player as of July 1.

The moment has come, perhaps the most difficult moment in my life because you don’t really want to leave Real Madrid,” Ramos said.

The club’s supporters supported me in good and bad times,” he added. I was hoping to say goodbye to them on the field.”

He expressed his desire to win “more titles”, referring to what he is doing today, “not goodbye, but see you later because I will return to Real Madrid sooner or later.”

On the other hand, Peres considered that Ramos’ departure “is not an easy day”, recalling his contract with his defender from Seville when he was nineteen years old for 27 million euros.
