The Spanish defender of Paris Saint-Germain Sergio Ramos assured that he is experiencing “the dream start” to the season after the previous one, the first with the French club, was very disturbed by injuries.
“It is being the dream start. After last season she wanted everything to go well. Emotionally it is always important to start by winning a title”, said the player in the club media, referring to the victory in the Super Cup achieved last weekend against Nantes in Tel Aviv.
Ramos, scorer of a goal in that game, pointed out that “scoring in a final is always special” and was pleased to also have an offensive contribution.
“Defending, keeping a clean sheet is the priority, but if you can contribute offensively, the better,” said Ramos, adding that “it’s going to be an exciting season.”
“I am in a great momentafter a good preseason, with a lot of effort, a lot of dedication, many hours of work to feel good”, he pointed out.
“It has been a well-carried progression, well planned by the coaching staff. I am happy to start little by little, now I have reached a good level”, he indicated.
Ramos said he was satisfied with the new game system put in place by the coach, Christophe Galtier, with three central defenders.
“I hadn’t played with that system in a long time. We are adapting. It has its advantages, it gives solidity, stability and defensive balance that can be transmitted to those above. After the counterattacks they can come back a little slower, ”he assured.
“We are picking up the pace to make the covers. It is a system that is going to work very well for us. and I am delighted to be part of the eleven and to do so as a central defender on the right”, he said.
The former Real Madrid player assured that it takes time for the team to get to know each other on the pitch with this new system and praised its new coach.
“He is a coach with a high technical and tactical level, who has won the league with another team. He is a wise man and we have to take advantage of that, transfer the idea he has to the field”, he affirmed. (D)
