Sergio Ramos' Sensational Highlights In PSG Debut Are The Best You'll See From A Centre Back

Sergio Ramos dropped a defensive masterclass during his Paris Saint-Germain debut and many are amazed he managed it in his first game in six months.


Ramos arrived in the French capital on a free transfer after spending 16 trophy-laden years with Real Madrid, who he captained for a large spell.

The 35-year-old has battled with injury over the last six months and his last game before today actually came for Madrid in May.

But he lined up alongside Marquinhos for Sunday's clash with St-Etienne and immediately reminded us all just how good he is. Not bad for a man who was reportedly going to have his contract 'terminated' earlier this month.

While it was strange seeing Ramos without the captain's armband, he brought the technique and intensity of old.

He stepped into midfield to ping balls over the top but also wasn't afraid to get down and dirty with a number of vital challenges and headers.

PSG emerged as 3-1 winners to maintain their 12 point lead at the top of Ligue 1.

Fans have reacted to Ramos' performance and they think it's re-established him as the world's best centre back after some time away.

St-Etienne actually took a shock lead inside 23 minutes through Denis Bougana and it did set alarm bells ringing for Mauricio Pochettino's side.

Timothee Kolodziejczak was sent off just before half-time and it started to turn the tide in PSG's favour.

Marquinhos grabbed his first of the game late in the first half before Angel Di Maria fired home ten minutes before time.

Neymar was stretchered off with what appears to be a serious ankle injury before Marquinhos got his second of the game in injury time.

All three goals were assisted by Lionel Messi, who lined up with bitter rival turned friend Ramos for the first time ever.
