Ramos: 2014 my best year

Sergio Ramos has said 2014 was the best year of his life as he became a father for the first time and won the Champions League with Real Madrid.

The defender was speaking in an interview with FIFA’s official website in which he reflected on the last 12 months.

“It was a very complete year, both professionally and personally,” he recalled.

“A fabulous year full of positive energy, objectives achieved and dreams come true. What more can you ask for in life? I became a father, which is a feeling like no other, and found a very good level of stability in my family and home life.

“And on top of that, I won titles and had success with my team. It was an incredible year for me.

“Over 10 seasons at Real Madrid I’ve won pretty much everything, but that [the Champions League] was missing. That’s what tips the balance for me to choose 2014 as my best year.

“At Real Madrid, La Decima was always spoken of obsessively, so making that day come was pretty much an obligation.

“It’d been a long time since we’d last brought that Cup home and we were determined to prove our worth and put the club back where it belongs, as both an institution and a team.

"And on an individual note, the fact I contributed that bit extra both in the semi-final and the final [by scoring] means that being able to add that title to my honours’ list is special. It was one of the greatest moments of my life.”
