Sevilla FC formalized on Monday the return, for one season, of Spanish central defender Sergio Ramos to his training club.
the old captain of the Spanish selection “Arrived in Seville on Monday morning to undergo the medical examination and sign his contract, which binds him to the club for one season”the Andalusian club said in a statement.
The former defender of PSG thus finds the club where he was trained, 18 years after his departure for Real Madrid, where he notably won four Champions Leagues.
According to the Spanish press, the 2010 world champion will receive a salary estimated at just over one million euros net per season, which is far from the astronomical sums offered to him by certain Saudi clubs such as Al-Ittihad.
“It’s a debt to my father, my grandfather, Sevillismo, (Antonio) Puerta (Sevilla player who died in 2007), so many things that mattered”commented the Spanish legend.
The former Real Madrid player had sold the wick a few hours earlier by declaring himself “glad to be back”.
“It’s a very special day, it’s always a great joy to come home, now we have to p the medical tests”the 37-year-old told reporters.
“I couldn’t wait to get home, there was no reason to go anywhere else”explained Ramos on his arrival in Andalusia.
Sevilla FC are currently in last place in La Liga after four rounds, but are one game behind. In the Champions League, the Andalusian club will play the group stage in Group B, with Arsenal, PSV Eindhoven and RC Lens.
