Sergio Ramos was born on March 30, 1986 in one of the towns of the Spanish province of Seville. Sergio began climbing the football Olympus at the age of 14. It was then when he came on trial to the local Sevilla FC and showed himself as a very tenacious and competent defender. And it was then that he joined the youth team and began to appear on the pitch regularly.
In 2004, Sergio Ramos was promoted to the team’s main squad where he played 25 matches and managed to score once. Same year Sergio made his first debut in La Liga and became the UEFA Euro U19 champion. At the end of the next season he was awarded La Liga Breakthrough Player of the Year.
In March 2005, Sergio played his first match for the Spain national team and became its youngest player over the last 60 years. After a successful defence display in one of the key matches of the FIFA World Cup 2006 Ramos got a place in the main squad and played a key role as a defender of the national team.
In summer 2005, Ramos became a player of Real Madrid in a transfer worth almost 30 million euros. Many great football clubs of the world wanted to have him on their roster, however, only Real Madrid did not begrudge money and got a talented and devoted player in return. Last year, Sergio signed a new contract with the club according to which he will be with Real Madrid till 2017 and will get 4.5 million euros a season.
Sergio Ramos is a universal defence player. He is excellent at winning the ball, has good speed and plays good with his head. His main position is wingback, but recently coaches actively use him as central defender and box-to-box midfielder.
During his relatively not long career Sergio Ramos played more than 300 matches in different competitions, managed to win gold medals of the FIFA World Cup and the UEFA Euro. The majority of Sergio’s goals were jumping headers under pressure which is no wonder for a defender of good height.
