Sergio Ramos Heaps Praises On Zinedine Zidane Following La Liga Triumph.

Real Madrid star Sergio Ramos has heaped praises on manager Zinedine Zidane following triumph in the La Liga on Thursday night.

Club legend Zinedine Zidane won his 11th trophy as Real Madrid manager as he helped the Spanish giants regain the La Liga title since 2017 from arch-rivals Barcelona.

Los Blancos defeated Villarreal 2-1 at the empty Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano to win the Spanish top flight title for a record 34th time, and their first without Cristiano Ronaldo.

They stopped Barcelona from winning a 3rd straight La Liga title with an insurmountable seven-points gap at the top of the table and a game to spare.

Captain Ramos believes club legend Zidane, who won a LaLiga title and three successive  Champions League medals during his first three years as boss, was the influential factor in the team's success.

"Everything Zidane touches turns into gold," Sergio Ramos told La Liga.
"Zidane has been key, he's the captain of the ship, he led us right from the start of the season,"

"Winning the league is the reward of hard work, persistence and balance. We deserve credit for what we've done, despite what some people say.

"Zidane put a lot of faith in all of his players and we've always felt protected with Zizou, he believed in us. Let's hope that it's valued properly. He's a unique coach." Ramos added;
"We believe in him and in his work. He's the one who has to make the difference, he's a person who trusts players, and few do. We hope he stays here for a very long time".

Ramos is into the final year of his contract at Madrid and the Spaniard expressed his desire to see out his career at the club.
"It depends on what the president wants, I'd like to finish my career here," Ramos said.
"I'm very relaxed, I'm sure there won't be any problem and I hope I can retire here."

Real Madrid president Fiorentino Perez also confirmed that Sergio Ramos will remain Madrid player;
“He will surely end his career at Madrid. He is more than a captain. He has led the team with enormous leadership to winning trophies".

The 34-year-old has played a total of 649 matches for Real Madrid, scoring 96 goals and creating 39 assists. 

He has also won 5 La Liga titles, 4 Champions League, 4 Supercopa de Espana, 4 Club World Cups, 3 UEFA Super Cups and, 2 Copa del Rey with the club since his transfer from Sevilla in 2005.
