Real Madrid president Florentino Perez talked to Television Española this Sunday, right after club captain and legend Sergio Ramos broke Spain’s record for most appearances with 168 caps for the national team.

“Beyond the all the attributes we can all see he has other qualities like leadership and ambition which have helped him become a legend, not just for Real Madrid and the Spanish national team but for the world of football,” said Perez.

Ramos is 33 years old but Perez thinks the defender still has plenty of fuel left in the tank.

“All those qualities are as present in him today as they were when he started. I’m sure the Sergio Ramos legend has a long time left,” added the president.

There are reports suggesting that Ramos would like to play for Spain in the 2020 Olympic Games and even the defender admitted to like such idea. Ramos is indeed a football legend and still has time to even add some more accolades to his legacy.
