Sergio Ramos Labelled "One Of The Nicest Defenders In Football" And A "Very Good Sportsman"

Sergio Ramos Labelled "One Of The Nicest Defenders In Football" And A "Very Good Sportsman"

Sergio Ramos has a reputation in world football as a no-nonsense, dogged defender who doesn't mind bending the rules from time to time.

The Real Madrid captain has, in the past, flirted with poor sportsmanship, most notably in the Champions League final when he dragged Mohamed Salah to the ground, injuring him in the process.

But in a post-match interview that many didn't see coming, Norway and Bournemouth striker Joshua King couldn't speak more highly of the 32-year-old.

King came face to face with Ramos in the European Championship qualifier on Saturday afternoon, a game where both men found the net.

And he couldn't speak more highly of the defender:

"Ramos has a reputation of being dirty and rough, but I do not remember going up against a centre-back as nice as Ramos," King said after the game.

"I think that I did really well against one of the best centre-backs in the world. He seemed to me a very good sportsman."

Spain eventually picked up all three points in the Group F tie, thanks to a cheeky Panenka penalty from the Real Madrid captain in the 71st minute.

While the Bournemouth forward also bagged from the spot to level the game.

It was an entertaining affair and one man who impressed was Ramos' teammate Martin Odegaard, who produced this silky piece of skill when he came up against Sergio Busquets.
