Former Real Madrid Star Player Sergio Ramos Retires From International Football

Sergio Ramos has retired from international football with Spain after being told he is not in the plans of the team’s new manager.

The 36-year-old PSG defender won the European Championship twice and the World Cup with his country.

Having earned 180 caps for his country, he has decided to end his remarkable career.

After speaking with De la Fuente, who succeeded Luis Enrique after the World Cup, this morning, Ramos described how he believes he has been forced into the choice.

 

He issued a heartfelt 334-word statement on Instagram alongside many photos from his time playing for La Roja, writing, “The time has come, the time to say goodbye to the national team, our dear and thrilling Red.

Ramos was a key member of the La Roja team that won the 2010 World Cup under Luis Aragones and the 2008 and 2012 European Championships under Vicente del Bosque.

He joins Sergio Busquets of Barcelona, who announced his retirement in December, as a player from that era who has done so in recent months.
