Sergio Ramos leaves Real Madrid after 16 years

Long-time captain Sergio Ramos is leaving Real Madrid after 16 years at the club.

The centre-back came over from Sevilla in 2005 and went on to enjoy a stellar career at Real, winning four Champions League trophies and five La Liga titles.

He made 671 appearances and scored 101 goals from defence, many at crucial moments, most notably the 2014 Champions League final when Ramos’ stoppage time header against rivals Atletico Madrid sent the game into extra-time, with Real going 4 won. 1.

On Wednesday, the La Liga giant released details of a press conference on Thursday that will mark a farewell to the 35-year-old.

The brief statement confirmed that Ramos would appear on video camera while club president Florentino Pérez would also be in attendance.

Ramos, who is considered one of the best players of his generation, is now becoming a free agent.
