Sergio Ramos Takes Blame For "Disastrous" Real Madrid

Sergio Ramos

It's all laugh and joys at Santiago Bernabeu, as the team has recently announced that they've officially appointed Zinedine Zidane as their 'new' boss.

Even so, that can't distract us from the fact that the team's captain, Sergio Ramos, isn't precisely having the time of his life at Real Madrid.

Ramos has been heavily under fire since he openly admitted to forcing a yellow card during the 1st leg of the UEFA Champions League's round-of-16 against Ajax, missing the 2nd leg and watching his team being thrashed from the sidelines.

Moreover, the Spaniard even stepped up to defend his teammates from controversial chairman Florentino Perez, and went on to threaten to leave the club in the summer if they were willing to buy him out.

The captain has acknowledged the team's campaign has been major chaos from start to finish, but he didn't hesitate to let everybody know a piece of his mind and show that he won't hide when things get difficult.

 “As footballers we like to do our talking on the pitch but this season is not turning out that way. Recent events have been disastrous and I’m not hiding. We are not hiding. We the players are primarily responsible and I, as captain, more than anyone," Ramos said on social media.

Gladly for the 32-year-old, Zidane's comeback may be enough to boost the spirits of a team that has looked defeated and lost for months.
