A Man Misunderstood

As most of you all know, Sergio Ramos led Real Madrid to third consectutive UEFA Champions League title a few weeks back. Soon he will captain La Roja as they head to Russia to win another world cup title.

Before the party starts in Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow, I wanted to again talk about how Sergio Ramos has been getting a lot of unwarranted abuse through social media. So, in Kyiv, Ukraine Los Blancos were able to overcome Liverpool FC 2-1 to become Kings of Europe for the third straight time. In that match, there was a coming together between The Reds Talisman Mohammed Salah and Ramos. During the collison, Salah ended up damaging his shoulder and wasn't able to continue in the match. Almost all Liverpool fans and a lot of neutrals felt Ramos injured the star attacker on purpose. Now weeks after the match, people and news outlets are still going on saying that Ramos should be punished for this and also that he gave Liverpool keeper Loris Karius a concussion.

I am here to say that, Ramos did not intend to injure anyone in that final. He is just a hard nose competitor who should be a role model for a lot of young footballers throughout the world. If Ramos is guilty of anything is that his is a serial WINNER. He's a exemplary professional who gives everything for his team everytime that he's out there. At the level in which he plays, all players need to be ready for the intensity that will come their way. The media in recent weeks have done their best to paint a picture that Ramos is dirty which is the furthest from the truth. He's a tough players and those are the types of players who survive in this business.

I am sure he will give his all for Spain at the World Cup and I am sure that he will have a huge part to play in their success. Players like Sergio Ramos always make their teams stronger, how can you fault anyone for that. So as the big show starts in just over a week, keep an eye on Ramos and all the other starts of the beautiful game. His play can inspire great things for Spain, they could go all the way!
