Sergio Ramos flashes ‘greenlight’ at EPL clubs

By on January 9, 2015

Just when English clubs were casting their gaze away from the possibility of snapping up Real Madrid’s amiable defender, Sergio Ramos, the Spaniard has recently lamented the quality of refereeing in the Spanish La Liga and also stated that he would fancy a move to the English Premier League. This outburst came on the back of Real Madrid’s 2-0 defeat to city rivals, Atletico Madrid in the Copa del Rey round of 16 tie on Wednesday.

The Spanish defender moved to the Santiago Bernabeu in 2005 when he was barely 19-years-old but despite his age, his deal ensured that the Spanish giants parted with as much as 27 million euros. Since his arrival, Ramos has ensured that he puts up wonderful performances enough to keep in him in the good books at the club, the dedication that he has shown in over 300 appearances for the club has endeared him to the club faithful and he was also an integral part of the team that landed the evasive (La Decima) Champions League trophy for the club.

Sergio Ramos is however, guilty of complacency when he committed a foul to gift the hosts a penalty kick in the second-half, although some observers believed that the referee’s decision was quite harsh, many others agreed with the officiating leaving the blame on Ramos’s door step. Ramos was quoted by AS to have said: ‘The only thing I will say is that with each passing day, I prefer the English Premier League.’ Whatever prompted this outburst will matter less to the excited English clubs who will be intensifying their plans to swoop on the defender once the opportunity surfaces.

Funny enough, it isn’t as if the English Premier League doesn’t have officiating issues of its own at least considering the rate at which Jose Mourinho cries foul but what matters at the moment is that the trio of Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea have been put on high alert with Sergio Ramos’s statement.
