Sergio Ramos expressed his admiration for Real Madrid’s latest signing Eden Hazard, calling him “world class”.
The 33-year-old defender is currently on international duty with Spain and is about to go up against Sweden in the Euro 2020 qualifiers. “He is coming to play with us, we were already here, right? [laughs] I’m happy,” said Ramos. “I think it’s a great signing. He is a world-class player. It is good to reinforce the squad.”
Madrid underwent a disappointing 2018/19 campaign but are hopeful of bouncing back with Hazard leading the attack. Ramos got involved in transfer rumours a while back with the veteran reported to have notified Zinedine Zidane and club president, Florentino Perez of his desire to move to China.
The Spaniard immediately took to the press to kill all speculations. He added, “I had to go out to give the press conference. I think it was the best for everyone. The important thing was to turn the page and not talk about it any more. The goal is achieved. I am very happy in Real Madrid and playing for the national team is not a relief but a source of pride.
“When you have been injured, you really value what you do not have. I live it as if it were the last time. It’s all very well.”
