Toni Kroos was full of praise for his Real Madrid captain on Einfach Mal Luppen, a podcast he hosts with his brother.

“When Ramos has an opinion, he expresses it for good of the team, without any reservations. And that was unlike anything I had ever seen before. So if we talk about captains, in my opinion, he is the best you can have,” Kroos explained.

The German then went on to discuss how both he and Sergio have learned from each other and the powerful voice that Sergio Ramos has within the club. “I’m more tan happy to have Sergio as my captain. I learned a lot from him and he learned a lot from me, I have to admit. He is someone who implements everything incredibly well and he’s someone who is listened to in the club by everyone. Sergio leads by example.”

Toni Kroos adds to a long list of professionals who are impressed with Sergio Ramos’ leadership. Luis Enrique, Zinedine Zidane, Iker Casillas, and Vinicius JR are just some of the names on that list. The Real Madrid captain is a figurehead who represents the clubs values both through actions and words.
