Real Madrid Club legend Fernando Hierro was on the top of this list – well, before Sergio Ramos swooped in and bagged the 5th all-time Real Madrid appearances position in La Liga.
On February 10, 2020, fans saw Sergio Ramos making a La Liga appearance for the 440th time.
Ramos is achieving milestones and beating records! Currently, there are only four more players ahead of him with more appearances – Santillana (461 appearances), Casillas (510 appearances), Sanchis (523 appearances), and Raul (550 appearances).
What’s more, legend Fernando Hierro was himself very pleased and praised Ramos profusely. He stated that what Sergio Ramos has managed to do with Real was extremely impressive. He has called Sergio Ramos ‘extraordinary’ and ‘remarkable’.
“Sergio Ramos is absolutely remarkable,” he told LaLiga.
“Years ago we defenders had more chances to score, we’d often play in midfield. But in today’s day and age, in the 21st century, Sergio is extraordinary.
“[Gerard] Pique scores quite a few goals too, but Sergio really is an anomaly.
“His goal scoring record for Real Madrid and the national team is remarkable.”
We also agree that Sergio Ramos is indeed remarkable – and now that he passed Fernando Hierro, he’s added to the list of legends at Real Madrid for sure!
