The Spain international commented on being excluded from the Spain national team squad that will prepare for the European Championships by Luis Enrique.
’ name was not included in the list of the 24 players who will feature in the European Championships when Spain manager
released the list.
The talismanic central defender is Spain’s most capped player as he featured in 180 matches for his country.
This season, however, the 35-year-old has been dealing with a lot of injury setbacks that limited his appearances to 15 starts.
He took the matter to social media and wrote:
“After a tough few months and a strange season unlike anything I have experienced in my career comes the Euros.
“It pains me not to have been able to help my team more and not to play for Spain but, in this case, the best thing to do is rest, fully recover and come back next year like we’ve always done. It hurts not to represent your country, but I have to be honest and sincere.
“I wish all my teammates the very best of luck and I hope we have a great Euros. I’ll be another fan cheering on from home. A big shout to everyone and #VivaEspaña and #HalaMadrid always!”
Aside from Ramos not being in the Spain squad, no Madrid Player has been included, which is the first time this happened in major finals.
