Sergio Ramos is in his second season with Paris Saint-Germain and it’s been a much better campaign for the veteran defender. Nonetheless, the capital club is currently in the middle of a two-match losing streak.
Ahead of the first leg contest in the UEFA Champions League Round of 16 against Bayern Munich, Ramos spoke about manager Christophe Galtier and the entire PSG squad.
Ramos noted in an interview with UEFA why Galtier is the right person to guide the team filled with star players and the expectations that they need to win every competition, especially the Champions League.
“He’s really a great leader; he arrived with a lot of humility in the team,” Ramos said. “He is a coach who never lies, who tells you everything to your face, and that is very important. Moreover, he is a great coach: he won with other teams before PSG, so he has experience. It will do us good and make us progress as a team.”
The 36-year-old defender then discussed what he thinks of the PSG squad that will welcome the German giants on Tuesday at the Parc des Princes. PSG needs a win to break up this lousy stretch of two matches that saw the capital club lose back-to-back fixtures.
“We have a lot of stars, some of the best players in the world,” Ramos added. “Nevertheless, only a united team can get the most out of its best players. When a team ends up winning, it’s because they let their personal egos aside.
“This season, the objective is to give the best of ourselves and to keep the balance as a team. That takes precedence over any stars we might have.”
Ramos and PSG hope Tuesday’s contest against Bayern Munich marks the game that allows them to turn their form around.
