SERGIO RAMOS! This man has completely changed the definition of a defender. Until now, a defender was someone who defends his goal by staying back while his team attacks. But Ramos has changed the notion totally. He scores goals almost for fun.
The Real Madrid captain has now scored 10 LaLiga goals this season. He is calm from the penalty spot and deadly from headers. But it’s quite unbelievable for a defender to be such prolific in front of the goal.
He scored a penalty against Athletic Bilbao to win the match 1-0 and took his tally to 10 goals for this season, which is just an incredible stat! And what’s even more surprising, Ramos has more goals than even Lionel Messi after the season restarted.

Sergio Ramos is focused on ensuring Real Madrid keep winning games to lift the LaLiga title. He said post-match: “All I think about is the three points. But those moments of doubt [when taking penalties], that’s when I feel most comfortable. I just wanted to take that responsibility. What matters most is the overall result. The only thing that matters is that it helps the team win.”
He added: “The individual recognition is second for me. What matters is that the team get the objectives we want and manage to get the three points in every game we play. Luckily, for the moment, we are getting those results.”
“I would have probably played tennis if I were more interested in individual recognition. This is a very beautiful sport, a team sport, and it’s very nice to win as a team.”
“It was very important for us. We knew today was going to be one of the most important games of those that are left for us. It’s a very difficult game always, travelling away to Bilbao. We just organised it like that: we had 11 finals left coming back from lockdown and we just had to go game by game, getting the three points.”
“I believe today, again, the team proved that against a team like this, you always have to be at it. We’re very happy with the three points. That was our objective. It’s three very important points to put more pressure on Barcelona, who play later today.”
“We just want that league title. From the first minute, you could see how we wanted to go for that game and get the result today. We knew we weren’t going to win 3-0 or 4-0 today – it was going to be a very tough game – but it was important.”
The football community has all been in praise for this incredible defender. There’s no other option other than to admire his play and leadership qualities. Here are some of the tweets:
