REAL MADRID | TIME TO PAYBACK SERGIO RAMOS

Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos sits at the top of the Real Madrid CF mountain & the Football World. His last minute equalizing goal against Atletico de Madrid in last Saturday s UEFA Champions League Final not only took away the Trophy from the rivals hands but set up his team to later score 3 more goals in the extra-time to win.

Ramos goes down in the Clubs History as the player (the "messiah") of "the 10th" European Cup for Real Madrid healing an almost "collective psychotic" Club obsession which was beginning to block the Club.

But this euphoric & legendary status was not always this way. In fact early in the season ( around Xmas) there was a serious rip between Sergio Ramos & Real Madrid, its was all about money. The defender requested that he be lifted in the salary bracket to the levels of Iker Casillas & Gareth Bale, approximately 10-11M€ per season. The Club refused claiming that they have recently renewed his contract. 

The players "disappointment" was such that his on field performance dropped & that he even began to contemplate leaving Real Madrid "threatening" to accept offers from other Clubs. The relationship between player & Club was tense, & a sort of "peace period" was agreed to study things in the future. 


Now it is time to strike again while the "knife is hot". Sergio Ramos via his representative - his Brother Rene - will begin their frontal attack to get from the Club their desired improved contract & those 10M€/season or more conditions. This time around there is very little that Real Madrid can do to deny him his contractual desires. Sergio Ramos has entered the "Olympus" of the Club & as such will have to be treated as a "local God".

As Sergio Ramos has said on numerous occasions, hard work & perseverance pays dividends. What he forget to mention is that a match saving last minute goal in a UEFA Champions League Final is worth its "weight" in Gold.
