Former Spanish national team defender, Sergio Ramos, returned to his first club, Sevilla, on Monday, 18 years after he left the club to join Real Madrid.
Ramos, 37 years old, signed a one-year contract, after his contract with Paris Saint-Germain expired.
Ramos was born a few kilometers from Seville, and joined its academy at the age of seven.
After the end of Ramos’ contract with Saint-Germain, last June, sources told Reuters that the defender, famous for his ferocity and mastery of head strikes, rejected a huge offer from Al-Ittihad, the holders of the Saudi Professional League title, and agreed with his childhood club to return.
Sevilla said in a statement, “Sergio arrived at the academy at the age of seven and passed through various age-level teams until he played his first match with the first team at the age of 16 in the 2002-2003 season (..) The heart of the academy’s defense returns to his home nearly two decades after his move to Real Madrid at the age of 19.”
Ramos moved to the Royal Giant from the Andalusian club in 2005, and continued with them for 16 years, but failed to reach an agreement to renew his contract, so he moved to Saint-Germain in 2021.
Ramos won five Spanish League titles, four Champions League titles, and scored 101 goals during 671 matches in various competitions with Real Madrid.
He is also the most representative player for the Spanish national team, winning the 2010 World Cup and the European Championships in 2008 and 2012 with his country.
