Ramos: CL a dream, not an obsession

Sergio Ramos says that the thought of winning the Champions League with Real Madrid is more of a dream than an obsession.

The centre-back has told Champions magazine that the Champions League is the only competition he has not yet won and, as such, it is the one that attracts most of his attention, in an interview reprinted by Mundo Deportivo.

“I feel very fortunate to have won almost every title at the professional level but the Champions League remains,” Ramos said.

“It’s never been an obsession or a special love but when there is something missing on your résumé it’s what attracts attention.

“It’s not a constant obsession but it would be a dream come true.”

Ramos added that while Madrid are well-placed to progress from the semi-final of this year’s competition, with a 1-0 lead over Bayern Munich from the first-leg, the tie is far from settled.

“Things are going well and from the work we have done we are convinced anything is possible,” Madrid’s vice-captain added.

“It’ll be an entertaining encounter and we’ll see who is better and who makes fewer mistakes.

“I hope everything goes the way we want it. It would be a dream to contest the final of the Champions League.”

Ramos continued by praising Bayern and calling on Madrid to dig deep to see off the defending champions.

“Bayern are one of the best teams in the world, and one of the most competitive teams,” he said.

“It’s not enough to have good players. When you face great opponents you have to fight too.”
