The current Real Madrid and Spain captain left his club in 2005 to join Los Blancos, but no explanation for the move was offered, leading to speculation and false stories spread.
Leaving Sevilla was painful for Ramos and his family
Sergio Ramos has revealed the pain he felt leaving Sevilla to join Real Madrid. The current Real Madrid and Spain captain left his club in 2005 to join Los Blancos, but no explanation for the move was offered, leading to speculation and false stories spread. “I know what Sevilla is and how fans feel,” Ramos said. “No one can tell me because I have experienced it since childhood. All information was manipulated, and they lied to Sevilla. It was painful not only for me but also for my family. I will never forgive them the pain that my grandparents went through for my parents, who cannot return to Sevilla’s stadium.
The captain doesn’t regret his decision
“It is the biggest pain I have felt. That’s why I acted with rage and anger when I played and scored there, because of everything my family was suffering.” Despite the problems that have arisen since his move, Ramos does not regret his decision. “I would have made the same decision a thousand times, but I never allowed anyone to tell the story that was told at the time,” Ramos said. “To this day, I can always say that I played for Sevilla and that I will always be a Sevilla player until I die, but I can also proudly say that I am the captain of Real Madrid and Spain.” One of the mistakes Ramos regrets does not explain his decision to leave at the time, as he had already mentioned.
“I’ve made mistakes in my life, and one of the biggest was not coming out publicly to explain,” he said. “Without explaining it, I let others tell the story for me. My signing was completely agreed between the clubs; it was not Real Madrid meeting a clause, as it was said to have been. That meant that the fans did not show the same affection that I’ve always had and always will have for the club.”
