“I miss Sergio Ramos” admits former team mate


Luka Modric has admitted he still misses former Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos following the latter’s departure last year, with the Croatia international revealing the pair “still talk to each other every day” despite playing in countries different.

Spanish veteran Ramos ended his long relationship with Los Blancos, with whom he enjoyed almost unparalleled success at the club over the past decade at home and in Europe.

Ramos decided to move to Paris Saint-Germain as a free agent last summer and has struggled to settle since his move to France.

His former club have re-established themselves as Europe’s top team by winning the Champions League this season under Carlo Ancelotti, but former Ballon d’Or winner Modric admits he still misses his old team-mate Ramos.


“All the departures of players with people you spend years with, in a very successful era, are painful. For everyone”, Modric first told Sportske.

“After nine years, ‘Sergi’ is not there. From the first day he was by my side, he helped me adapt to Real Madrid, he encouraged me, he believed in my potential…”.

“We became great friends, our families got together, we spent the summer together. We still talk about those days, at least by text. I miss going out with him, but that’s how things are in football”, concluded the Croatian.
