The Italy international center-back claims that Real Madrid man knew precisely what he was doing when. In the early stages of the game, knocked the striker of the Reds. Forcing him to leave with a shoulder injury that a few weeks later compromised the in-form star’s presence at the World Cup.

Chiellini placed Ramos as the best defender in the world

Giorgio Chiellini placed Sergio Ramos as the best defender in the world because of his hostile attitude. Which was noticed by injuring Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah in the final of the 2018 Champions League. The Italy international center-back claims that Real Madrid man knew precisely what he was doing when. In the early stages of the game, knocked the striker of the Reds. Forcing him to leave with a shoulder injury that a few weeks later compromised the in-form star’s presence at the World Cup. Meanwhile, the Spaniards went on to win the title with a 3-1 victory in the match. Remembered by the misfortune of the Reds goalkeeper Loris Karius. For Chiellini, however, it was a “masterstroke” of defense and served to emphasize his position as the best center-back in the game.

Ramos is emotional

“Critics can say that he is emotional, not at all tactical and that because of him there are eight or ten extra goals conceded a season,” Chiellini calculated in his upcoming autobiography ‘I Giorgio.’ “If I caused an additional two or three goals, I would not have lived anymore”. He is very technical and could be an attacker, and we are the opposites. However, almost no one has two characteristics. “The former knows how to be decisive in important games. He makes interventions beyond any logic, even with injuries that he inflicts with almost devilish cunning”. Salah was a masterpiece. He always said that he did not want to injure him, but he was aware that falling and not letting go of his grip, nine times out of 10, you can break the opponent’s arm.

Without Sergio, Madrid becomes defenseless

“The second is the power that he conveys with his presence. Without him, stars like Raphael Varane, Dani Carvajal and Marcelo seem like children from the Primavera team. Without him, Madrid becomes defenseless”. Chiellini pointed to the stunning 4-1 home Champions League defeat to Ajax in 2019 as an example of his loss of critical for Madrid. “After the first match, they gave him a ban on two games because he was honest: He said that in life you have to choose and looked for a card to erase his record before the quarter-finals, “the Italian wrote. “With him at the Bernabeu, they can be sure that they would not lose by a three-goal margin. I’d bet you anything you want.”
