Sergio Ramos has said he’s “going to die” for Paris Saint-Germain when they face Real Madrid in UEFA’s Champions League. However, nonetheless, Ramos has pledged his allegiance in the PSG-Real Madrid clash in the Champions League last-16 round – with PSG.
The Spanish centre-back has answered eager questions about his emotions upon drawing his former club in Europe, and he left no doubts about his allegiance.
For one thing, Ramos has only managed to play in one match this year for PSG amid prolonged muscular injuries.
But he will hope to be available in the spring for the momentous two-legged clash for Champions League’s last-16.
Ramos Has Pledged His Allegiance in the PSG-Real Madrid Clash
Sergio Ramos almost played Manchester United instead of Real Madrid in the last-16. But due to some error with the United ball, UEFA had no choice but to re-draw all eight fixture pairings.
This is how PSG were re-drawn (the football news) against the Spanish side in an emotional turn of events for the ex-Real captain.
However, the Spaniard’s allegiances are undisputed for this spring clash involving his current PSG and the club he once captained.
“You know the affection and love I have for Real Madrid,” Ramos said. “Now it’s my turn to defend PSG and I’ll do everything possible to do it. It’s the team that bet on me. I’m going to die for PSG.”
“I would have liked not to have that confrontation [with Real Madrid], but returning to the Santiago Bernabeu is cause for joy [because] I could not have a real farewell because of Covid restrictions,” the PSG defender said.
