Real Madrid Santiago Siguero gives his opinion
Sergio Ramos picked up an injury, and surely you will read several theories about the mishap, similar to those of the Kennedy assassination. He was injured while on international duty with Spain, after receiving a call-up in search of a new record which could feature in another Amazon documentary season, but one which he would surely have beaten if he stayed at Valdebebas, where he would be subjected to the rigors of bathing and massage and after having recovered (in record time) from a knee surgery that, against the backdrop of will he renew or not, seemed to ensure his participation in the fantastic week or the terror that awaits Real Madrid, with the double duel against Liverpool and the Clasico against Barcelona.
All that is now out of focus after the captain’s latest injury, which comes after an international call-up plagued with great moments: a first half against Greece, 90 minutes on the bench against Georgia and some a cameo appearance against kos, or however it is called. A very poor balance for a footballer who aspires to reach the Olympus summit of national team matches, which for many marks a legitimate record, which no one has given away to the Spain captain, until the last episodes of dubious interpretations.
The point is that Ramos joined the national team and now the one who pays for it is Real Madrid, not to mention a Zinedine Zidane, who has even asked the club for an armistice with his captain, an event that now seems chimerical. Aged 35 and with six injuries suffered in the year his contract expires, the triumphs seem to be in the hands of the club, who maintain a position of strength based on an argument unrelated to its merit: there is no money to pay what Ramos believes he deserves.
Now comes the turn of the whisperers, who are often on both sides of the trenches, but the footballer is undoubtedly a legend of the game, despite his lack of finesse in managing many aspects adjacent to it. What we do not know is if this one that we now enjoy will be the last chapter of the series. In these times, in which Netflix marks up politics, nothing else could be expected. On your screens soon.
