Music is a way of expressing my mood, and it definitely helps to motivate me before a game. It also helps me move on from past defeats or keeps my mind busy when I'm not playing, so music is definitely something that follows me every step of every day.

I've always loved Nike shoes, and I'm in a position where I like to collect them now, especially the limited-edition Jordan and Air Max pairs. My house is full of special releases.

I don't watch football debate shows on TV, hardly listen to the radio or read the papers.

We all have our opinions; that's only human.

It takes many years to prove yourself the best in the world.

When I win, it doesn't occur to me to remember anybody who isn't a loved one.

I'm not going to get into what you do when you win.

To become a great player, you've got to show real dedication and commitment to football, and you've got to be very humble and hard-working. And, above all, you've got to fight to make your dreams come true.

Being the captain is a great privilege and a responsibility to lead a great group with different cultures.

Ignorance makes you very bold.

It is good to have competition.

I would love to win the Ballon d'Or, but honestly, I'm not even thinking about it.

On football

Football is to unite, not separate.

It is a mistake to mix politics and sport.

Sometimes you lose; that is football.

In the end, individual titles are achieved with the help of all your team-mates.

Playing against great teams makes victory more valuable.

I know the English fans will treat players as they deserve, and I'm not worried about that in the slightest.

The referees sometimes give for you, and others take it away.

Sometimes officials should look at English football and let us play more. I like their system because, in Europe, their referees are more lenient.

Football is like that: there's a new game every three days.

There are many penalties which referees don't see. Sometimes they are right, and many other times, they are wrong. That is football.

I like football, and I like good players.

The good thing about playing at home is that the crowd makes you feel that, sooner or later, you can win the game. We feel it on the pitch.

You have to give the Ballon d'Or to the best player in the world at that time. Any differences between what the players are like as individuals should not affect who is chosen for a personal award.

People single you out when they think you're not giving your all. When they see you giving it all you have, they don't get on your case.

I've played many matches against English clubs and the national team - and I always notice a difference in those games. When you play against the inventors of football, it adds more importance to the result, and you can see that demonstrated by the levels on the pitch.

Disrespect is bad for the atmosphere around a team.

Flattery and criticism are always in our profession.

The game is 90 minutes long, and there are many phases.

We need the right attitude and the right motivation - that can decide the match above everything else.

Bad things can happen even to the best players.

We have to take advantage of the power of football and show solidarity to people who are facing hard times. The fans give us so much love, and we have a responsibility to take that love and project it somewhere important, such as children who are in great need.

When one loses, it's easy to focus on the refereeing decisions.

It's up to the coach to decide who is in the best shape to play each match.

At the end of the day, the players and the coach have to talk - that's what consolidates the relationship.

On his playing style:

I think of myself as a great player, but the fans have to decide whether that's true.

I have adapted and feel comfortable in the middle, but I am a world and European champion at right back.

If I have to play at center back, I'll do it without any problems.

I like that defender-versus-striker battle, that challenge.

I think of myself as someone who gives everything, and I wake up every day wanting to keep growing.

I need to keep quiet and do my talking on the pitch.

Throughout my career, I have faced the best forward players in the world - many of them who are considered among the greatest ever. For me, there is never a fear. A respect, yes, but never a fear.

Right-wing, pivot, centre-back, full-back, right, left. I've never felt uncomfortable anywhere.

I don't care whether I play on the right or in the centre. All I want is for the coach to have faith in me.

Sergio Ramos quotes on Messi and Ronaldo

In every generation, young football fans argue endlessly about who is the best player of the history of football. In our generation the debate is between

Lionel Messi

and

Cristiano Ronaldo

fans. Ramos has played alongside Ronaldo and against Messi many times during his career at Real Madrid. He has praised both of them in his interviews. However, He believes Ronaldo is an-together better player than Messi. Here are Sergio Ramos quotes on Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

To compare players with Cristiano, Messi... they're in a different orbit, a different stratosphere.

Messi is a step below. Not in the past, but this year Cristiano has been the best.

Would I accept Messi in Madrid? 100%, I would be delighted to have Messi at Madrid. I would even make room for him in my house if necessary. We have had to suffer against him in his best years. Not having him in front of me to deal with would be good. I would like to see him at Madrid.

With Cristiano's departure, Cristiano lost out and Real Madrid lost out. I wouldn't have let him go, because he is one of the best and he would have brought us closer to winning. These are relationships that have to be for life, it has to be a team fusion. He is a decisive player who helped us win.

They could make a Golden Ball only for Cristiano and Messi, depending on the results, and another for the rest. In the end it would be better for football.

I think both Messi and Cristiano are two extra-terrestrials. Perhaps Leo has done the treble and won two more titles this season that compliment [Barcelona's] level. They are two megastars but maybe in the past year Leo had a little more.

Top quotes by Sergio Ramos about famous football players and teams

In this part of the article we present you with the top quotes by Sergio Ramos about other football great stars and teams, including his comments on Gerard Pique, Jose Mourinho and Neymar.

On Gerard Pique:

Pique

has been a great centre-back.

I think Pique, apart from the odd personal remark, has never had a bad opinion about any of my teammates at Real Madrid, but obviously, when he attacks Real Madrid, our club, and our institution, it kind of tarnishes all of the rest of what he says.

On Jose Mourinho:

The team needs a leader to handle everything with rules and constant stability. Mourinho is the ideal man for that job, and we are delighted about it.

Every day, I wake up eager to learn new things, and I am grateful to Mourinho for that.

Mourinho is serious and demanding.

I am not someone who holds grudges, and I want to remember the good things about our time with Mourinho.

On Neymar:

I like to have the best, and it's clear

Neymar

is one of them.

On Harry Kane:

Harry Kane is a very complicated player to stop.

Harry Kane, for example, is a really physical striker but also really skilful. He surprises lot of defenders, but he won't surprise me.

On Mohamed Salah:

Its obvious Salah is a great player. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, if they want to compare to Cristiano they can.

On Ronaldo Nazario:

It's true that when I started out, I was more a fan of attacking players and one in particular: the Brazilian Ronaldo, Ronaldo Luis Nazario de Lima.

On Claudio Caniggia:

Another of my idols was Claudio Caniggia, an Argentinian forward with long hair, who I liked a lot. It's because of him that I started to grow my hair long!

On Carlo Ancelotti:

Since Carlo Ancelotti has arrived, he had emphasised hard work and intensity, and now that is what Real Madrid are associated with. He has playing experience, which makes him different to other coaches.

On Francesco Totti:

I think Totti would've had no problem playing in another big club. He's a born hitman, and great players always find a way to fit into a team.

When the list is made of the all-time best players, Totti will certainly be in there. I really believe he will be remembered as one of the greats.

On Zinedine Zidane:

Zidane has been key. He's the captain of the ship and he led us right from the start of the season, He put a lot of faith in all of us players and we have always felt protected with Zizu. He believed in us, we've all believed in the work we have done and let's hope that it's valued properly. He's a unique coach.

On Florentino Perez:

I don’t know what the president thinks about some of these things, so there are questions I can’t answer. My relationship with the president has always been extraordinary. Like a father and son, in a sporting sense. I’m grateful because he brought me here. I’m never going to speak out against him. I will remember the affection he showed me and our hug there in the farewell. Any misunderstanding is in the past. I’ll remember the good.

On Barcelona:

Barcelona

are not invincible.

The satisfaction of seeing Barca knocked out is there, I have more fights with them and they are a rival.

There are things in life that money can’t buy. Just like you wouldn’t see Xavi [Hernandez] or [Gerard] Pique at Madrid

On The Champions League:

There is no bigger motivation than playing in a UEFA Champions League final.

There are sometimes easier games and others harder, but the Champions League always requires enormous concentration.

The margin for error in the Champions League is tiny.

Best Sergio Ramos quotes about his club and international career 

We wrap up our article on Sergio Ramos quotes with a look at the

best Sergio Ramos quotes

about his club career at Sevilla and Real Madrid, as well as his international career with Spain.

On his international career with Spain:

To play and to win against England is big news around the world, and footballers are always grateful for that.

There is nothing more beautiful than being able to represent my country.

I played in Salamanca it was my debut against China. I was very young Luis Aragones was a coach. And the challenge I had! I remember Luis Aragones came to me and talked to me and said: “kid, don’t worry, I’m going to protect you, play the way you are playing in Seville and I’m sure you’ll make it”. Turned out he was right. I have a tremendous memory of my debut.

On his life-long affection for Real Madrid and his career at the club:

We must take on each match as best we can and try to recover from each as quickly as possible.

We've had to handle defeat many times, and you can't drawn any conclusions.

To fall in the Copa del Rey is a failure.

Whoever says Real Madrid are dead is always proved wrong in the long term.

We have never been anyone without the fans.

Real Madrid go for everything right from the start of the season. They always fight for the three competitions.

I wake up every day with a smile, and in that sense, I feel the same as I did when I arrived at Real Madrid in 2005.

It doesn't really bother us, the team that is in fashion or that is being talked about the most. Whatever praise or criticism we receive doesn't really matter.

When we don't win, we have to draw conclusions and assess our mistakes. Things can always be improved.

I am the captain of Madrid, and I will defend my team.

We all know the demands at this club, but I'm ready for this responsibility to make sure every Madridista is happy.

We will respect all our opponents, as we always do.

At Real Madrid, we have many good players that the team can learn from.

Whenever we lose, it is a sad day.

I'm a very temperamental person, but when you are wearing the captain's armband for Real Madrid or the national team, it's best to express yourself in a different way. You have to maintain a sense of unity - a good atmosphere where everyone feels happy is one of the keys to success, and that's something you shouldn't lose.

Madrid always opens its doors to great players.

It's typical at Real Madrid that we often seem to be going through a revolution.

I respect the opinion of the fans because their love is important, but when the things don't go well, they have to support the players because we all want the best for Madrid.

You learn quickly at Madrid. Every lesson here is three elsewhere.

I always said that when Madrid win, it wasn't just because of Ronaldo, Kaka, or another, and when you lose, it is not fair to blame the failures on these people alone.

When you win many titles, the rivals are full of antipathy towards you.

As long as there are chances, we have to fight to the end. That's Madrid's philosophy.

Defending for a team as offensive as Real Madrid isn't that easy.

There are no words to describe the Clasico. It is totally different and the most important game in the world.

Until the final whistle. Always until the final whistle, Another good cross by Luka, as usual... I'm happy with the goal. (On his famous goal against Atletico Madrid)

Many things have happened. The first thing I’d like to make clear is that I never wanted to leave Real Madrid. That was always my mindset. We won the post-lockdown league and then the club offered me the chance to offer my contract. But, that was delayed because of situations like the pandemic. The club then offered me a one-year extension with a salary reduction. I want to make clear that money was never the problem.

In the later recent conversations, I said I would accept the one-year offer, but then I was told the offer wasn’t there anymore, that there had been an expiry date. I hadn’t realised. (On why he left Real Madrid)

Every minute on the pitch I was myself. It has been the best stage of my life. We’ve won many titles. Joining is one of the best decisions I took in my life. (His farewell message to Real Madrid)
