‘Only He Can Know’ – Former PSG Defender Speculates Whether Sergio Ramos Should Retire

Former Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos has averaged less than one game a month since joining Paris Saint-Germain this past summer, and he is not spared physical glitches. 

Still absent since the end of January and a calf injury, the Spaniard had notably missed this first leg against his former club last week. Former capital club defender Alain Roche spoke with Le Parisien, stating that the situation isn’t ideal for the two parties involved. 

Furthermore, Roche speculates that the 35-year-old’s season is done, and if this is how his body will be responding at this stage in his career, he adds Ramos should consider hanging up his boots. 

“His body no longer follows. He has been hardworking throughout his career. He gave so much. For me, his season is over. When will he play? If he plays two games and gets injured again, what do we do? Yes, it is worrying,” Roche said. 

Roche compared Ramos’ problem to the one he had comprehended before retiring, saying that “the hardest part is making a decision” and that “only he can know.”

The Spain international signed a two-year deal this past summer. The capital club added the veteran defender to fill the elder statesman’s voice that they lacked following the departure of Thiago Silva in 2020. 

However, this signing hasn’t gone as planned, and Ramos could see his career ending.
