The situation 

Without a doubt, Sergio Ramos is one of the great protagonists of PSG’s pre-season. The Spanish central defender had a very difficult season in Paris due to injuries and, in his second year in the French capital, the former Real Madrid player has regained his sensations thanks to a great performance that culminated in his goal in the Super Cup against Nantes this Sunday in Israel. Ramos, in the post-match against Nantes, acknowledged having recovered from his physical problems that kept him away from the French capital throughout last season. Settled in a system of three central defenders, the one that he does not know from his time at Real Madrid, the camero seems to have forgotten the ordeal that prevented him from performing at the highest level at PSG. Although it sounds utopian at the moment, the reality is that Sergio Ramos has earned a place in Christophe Galtier eleven and dreams of playing in the World Cup. The French coach, accustomed to a 4-4-2 formation throughout his coaching career, has implemented a system of three central defenders at PSG in which Camas’s player is a right central defender to block Achraf Hakimi’s advances down the wing. Although in preseason he left many doubts due to his low speed to compensate for his back, the reality is that Ramos got in tune against Nantes and left an extraordinary performance with a backheel goal included.

At its best.

With just five days left to kick off the season against Clermont next Saturday, Sergio Ramos is enjoying his best moment since joining PSG a year ago. Regular, strong in duels and quick in coverage, the Spanish defender is experiencing a sweet moment in a team that signed him precisely to win the Champions League, a competition in which he was unable to debut all last season with his new team. The Parisian team signed him to aspire to the long-awaited maximum continental competition and his experience can be an addition to a team that, during the last five years, has accustomed the spectator to setbacks that have triggered internal crises that have caused great changes.
