When longtime Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos opted to leave Los Blancos in favor of a move to Paris Saint-Germain as a free transfer, many lauded the agreement because of the defender’s sheer potential to be a leader within the club’s defense. For PSG prospect El Chadaille Bitshiabu, he sees that this has been the case so far in the ongoing campaign.
During an interview with France Bleu Paris, Bitshiabu noted that in the several training sessions that he has accompanied Ramos in, he has seen the veteran Spanish defender play the role of a coach at times.
“Ramos, he doesn’t speak French yet,” Bitshiabu said. “But I understand some English and Spanish.
“And the few times I’ve been able to be in his team, in training, it’s been much more in tactics. He observes the game, he watches and he says at the right moment, in the right timing, where to advance, if you have to slide, if you have to take his place when he goes out. He is a playmaker.”
Ramos has been emerging as a regular for the club as of late. For one, he featured as a starter in PSG’s recent Ligue 1 home fixture against Reims, where he went on to play in 80 minutes of the contest and also bagged a goal.
PSG sure will need Ramos’ leadership and play to emerge as a pivotal factor for the club over the remainder of the season.
