Are you the biggest supporter against Liverpool?
‘Yes’- every supporter of the club can say. The same goes for the supporters of all the clubs in the world. Again, the supporters of all the clubs sometimes feel shocked to see someone and something. They think, aha! If only I could support him! In the case of Real, many may think that Sergio Ramos. Seeing his dedication to the team on the field, it seems that there is no bigger Real supporter than Ramos.
Goals must be stopped, Ramos is there! Opposition fights with teammates, blows- be careful! Ramos should not see, if he sees Kurukshetra can be tied! Ramos is also the most vocal in favor of the club in the media. Again, the comparison of his dedication from outside the field is fair.
Ramos was also seen at the Alfredo Di Stefano Stadium in the first leg of the Champions League quarter-final supporter against Liverpool that day. Sometimes clapping, sometimes cracking his throat, sometimes shaking his head in frustration, the frustration of not being able to get on the field face to face.
Meanwhile, there is no news of renewal of Real’s contract with Ramos. The current contract is coming to an end in June, if not renewed, the club will have to leave in June. However, seeing Ramos’ support for the club, many consider him to be Real’s biggest supporter. The bad news for Real is that the Madrid club are not getting this ‘biggest supporter’ even after the quarter-final return.
Ramos had already dropped out of the first leg due to a muscle injury. That match was at home, so the Spanish center-back was able to support Real at the Stefano Stadium. He did not have to return disappointed. Zinedine Zidane’s side have made it easy for them to reach the semi-finals with a 3-1 win.
But tomorrow’s return leg is on Liverpool’s field. Ramos will not be seen at Anfield in the gallery either. Karim Benzemara has already taken a flight to Liverpool to play this important match. Ramos could not get on the plane with his teammates as covid-19 was positive. On the way back, he will not be seen in the gallery for Real.
In an official statement, Real confirmed that Ramos had been tasted positive with coronavirus.
Real coach Zidane got the news that seven players in the squad were attacked by covid-19. Rafael Varane has added to his worries on the defense. The French defender has been in isolation since last Tuesday (April 6) due to a corona attack. Ramos will have to stay in isolation for 10 days. He will not be able to return to the field until it is negative.
The Real captain has not been able to play in the last three matches due to injury. He made his last appearance for the team in the last 16 return leg against Atalanta. Not only the return leg against Liverpool, Ramos will not be able to play against Hetafe and Cadiz in Real’s next two matches in La Liga. He is likely to return against Real Betis on April 24, but in that case, his covid report will have to be negative first.
Who knows if any player from the club has interacted with Ramos in the last few days. If anybody do, then the line of thought on coach Zidane’s forehead will grow even more, for sure. Then it may be seen that just before the first leg against Liverpool, just as the news of Varen’s coronation was heard, something like this will happen even before the second leg!
