Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos has revealed the main reason he is set to leave the club after 16 years of service.
Speaking at his farewell ceremony in Madrid, the legendary center half has revealed that he intended to accept Real Madrid’s offer of a one-year extension but was told that he had run out of time to accept it.
““Then club made me a one-year offer with a salary reduction. I have to say that there was no economic problem. I wanted two years and peace of mind for me and my family. During the last talks, I accepted the one-year offer, but I was informed that it was no longer possible, that it had an expiration date and that I had not heard about it,” Ramos told news reporters.
The spanish man who was left out of EURO 2020 squad leaves behind an incredible legacy in Madrid having won five La Liga titles, two Copas del Rey, four Supercopas de Espana, four Champions Leagues, three UEFA Super Cups and four Club World Cups.
“I’m one of those people who likes to be defined by others,” said. “If I had to use one word it would be purity. I have given my soul for this club. That’s how I want to be remembered, as a person of integrity.
