Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos is eager to win a trophy this season, but is prepared to wait to resume amid the coronavirus pandemic.
“Everyone’s health is not going to be put at risk. I am looking forward to playing again, returning to compete, playing in La Liga and the Champions League,” he said, via AS, while hosting Ramos UNICEF Day.
“I am hungry to end the season with a title, but first we have to wait for the people who know about all of this to make the appropriate decisions.”
Spain has been hit hard by coronavirus, with more than 232,000 reported cases and a death toll exceeding 23,800.
Ramos called on people to continue following the guidelines in the country.
“We can’t think that everything has already been achieved yet, the seriousness of the matter is still with us,” the defender said.
“We have to comply with the guidelines in order to end this virus and give scientists the time to find a vaccine.”
Ramos’ current contract expires in 2021 but former Real midfielder Fernando Redondo would like to see the club icon, who has won four La Liga titles and the same number of continental crowns, remain tied to Madrid.
“Sergio has a lot of football ahead of him,” he said of Ramos in an interview with AS.
“He is physically gifted and he has professionalism too. He’ll be the one who decides when to end his career.
“Logically, he has to be at Madrid and he has to remain linked to the club for everything he represents.”
