Former Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos has signed for Paris Saint-Germain this summer, and the 35-year-old has revealed that he wants to win the Champions League with the French outfit.
The Spanish international’s contract with Real Madrid expired earlier in the summer, and he has joined the Ligue 1 giants on a free transfer.
The experienced centre back has now outlined his ambitions ahead of his new adventure in Paris. The fans will undoubtedly be excited to see if he can help the team win the Champions League next season.
Speaking to the club’s official channel, the defender revealed: “I also felt that I was going to be able to play alongside great players and in a sporting project where there is a lot of desire. We are in a club that requires you to win it all. Aside from that, in football, a lot of things can always happen. There are many factors and several small details that make a result go in one direction or another. We need to think about winning and giving everything.”
“What I observed in this club is its solidity, the thirst for victory that the players have. They want to come to a club like this. They have already played the Champions League final, they are very close to being able to win it, and that is something that attracts me. It can only be a perfect marriage. If I can contribute, that would be marvellous for me. My dream is to win my 5th Champions’ League and the first for our club.”
PSG have been desperate to win the competition in the last few seasons, and they came close in 2020. However, they were beaten by Bayern Munich in the final.
Mauricio Pochettino’s men will be hoping to go all the way this year. They have brought in some excellent players already, and PSG have a formidable squad at their disposal.
That said, the French outfit could use the winning experience and the leadership of a player like Sergio Ramos, who has won every trophy at the club and international level.
The French outfit have missed Thiago Silva’s leadership at the back ever since the Brazilian international moved to Chelsea, and Ramos could certainly fill that void next year.
