On Monday, Sergio Ramos, the seasoned former Spanish defender, announced his return to Sevilla, his hometown club, after an 18-year absence.
“It’s a very special day. Returning home is always a tremendous joy, now we have to do the medical,” Ramos, 37, told the media.
“Happy to return and try to contribute as soon as possible, which is the important thing.”
Sevilla, currently at the bottom of La Liga without a single point from three matches, have earned a spot in the Champions League group stage due to their victory in the Europa League. Their campaign is set to commence on September 20.
Sergio Ramos departed Sevilla at the age of 19, securing a record fee for a Spanish defender as he joined Real Madrid. In 2021, he moved to Paris Saint-Germain but remained clubless since his contract with the French champions expired in June.
Local reports suggest that Sergio Ramos had a tempting offer from Al Ittihad in Saudi Arabia but ultimately chose to return to Sevilla. During his impressive 16-season stint at the Bernabeu, Ramos clinched La Liga five times and the Champions League four times.
Ramos, who represented Spain in 180 matches, netting 23 goals, was a vital part of the squad that triumphed in the European Championship twice (in 2008 and 2012) and secured the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.
