Sergio Ramos DEPARTS Sevilla ENDING A Brief Return To His Boyhood Club

Football veteran Sergio Ramos will not continue at Sevilla next season, bringing to an abrupt end his brief return to the Spanish club.

The 38-year-old will be back on the market again as a free agent, with many expecting him to move outside of Europe this time.

He will say his goodbyes tomorrow in a media conference alongside club president José María del Nido Carrasco.

According to reports from ESPN, Sevilla wanted Ramos to stay but he opted to move on because of the bad sporting and institutional situation of the team.

In a statement confirming the news, Sevilla said: “Sergio Ramos has informed Sevilla FC that he will not continue next season with the Nervion club after having fulfilled his dream of returning to the club where he trained as a player and achieved full international status. Sergio Ramos played 37 games in the 23/24 season, with a total of 3,301 minutes and 7 goals to his credit.

“Sevilla FC would like to thank Sergio Ramos for the commitment, leadership and maximum dedication that he has shown in this campaign, wishing him the best of luck in his next professional challenge. 

“Sergio Ramos will say goodbye publicly this Tuesday at 11:00 a.m. in the press room of the Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan, accompanied by the president, Jose Maria del Nido Carrasco.”

Ramos came through the youth system at the club he supported, making his first team debut in February 2004, before making a move to rivals Real Madrid in 2005 for €27 million ($28.9m).

He won five La Liga titles and four UEFA Champions League titles with Los Blancos before eventually leaving in 2021, spending two seasons with Paris Saint-Germain where he also won two Ligue 1 titles.

After 18-years away, he made an emotional return to Sevilla at the age of 37. He signed the day after the transfer window shut at the start of the season.

Ramos’ arrival was controversial amongst fans, with some not welcoming him back but on the whole he managed to win the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan, with thousands attending his presentation.

Sevilla endured a tough campaign, at one stage being at real risk of relegation before a late rebound under Quique Sanchez Flores as they finished 14th.

The World Cup winning defender next move has not been confirmed yet but he has been linked with lucrative switches to Saudi Arabia as well as MLS team San Diego FC in USA. 

He has made a record 180 appearances for Spain and was part of the squad that won the World Cup in 2010, Euro 2008 and Euro 2012.
