Sergio Ramos made a significant announcement on Monday, revealing his return to his hometown club, Sevilla, after an 18-year absence. Despite Sevilla’s current struggles in La Liga, having yet to secure a point in three matches, they have qualified for the Champions League group stage due to their status as Europa League champions, with their campaign starting on September 20.
“It’s a very special day, returning home is always a tremendous joy, now we have to do the medical,” Ramos, 37, said the media.
“Happy to return and try to contribute as soon as possible which is the important thing.”
Ramos left Sevilla as a 19-year-old to join Real Madrid for a then-record fee for a Spanish defender. During his 16 seasons at the Bernabeu, Ramos achieved remarkable success, winning La Liga five times and the Champions League four times. His return to Sevilla marks a sentimental and significant moment in his career.
After a stint with Paris Saint-Germain in 2021, where he added to his list of accomplishments, Ramos had been a free agent since his contract with the French club expired in June. Despite having attractive offers from other clubs, Ramos was eager to return to Sevilla, the club where it all began for him.
Ramos’ connection to Sevilla runs deep, as it is his hometown, and his decision to rejoin the club is a heartfelt homecoming for the veteran defender. The move is sure to excite Sevilla fans and bring a wealth of experience and leadership to the team.
“I was eager to return home. It made no sense to go anywhere else without passing through here,” stated Ramos who was born on the outskirts of Seville.
Over his illustrious career, Ramos not only achieved success at the club level but also represented Spain in international competitions. He earned 180 caps for Spain, scoring 23 goals, and was a vital part of the team that won the European Championship twice (in 2008 and 2012) and the historic 2010 World Cup in South Africa.
Sergio Ramos’ return to Sevilla is a significant moment in his career, and it represents a heartfelt homecoming to his hometown club. Despite Sevilla’s current challenges in La Liga, their qualification for the Champions’ League group stage provides an exciting opportunity for Ramos to make an impact once again. His illustrious career, including his time at Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain, has solidified his status as one of the football world’s legends.
