With 53 minutes late, the video call scheduled by the communication department of the Pars Saint-Germain to put in contact, for the first time, to Sergio Ramos, his new star, with the Spanish press, began. In the main tribune of the Parc des Princes, with its new stadium as the stage, the Sevillian footballer, who is celebrating his first days in Paris, has appeared smiling and with new airs. It is as if he wanted to forget the past, ‘reset’, which is said in modern times. With a well-stretched ponytail and the official clothes of his new team, he has preferred to look forward than back, although looking back, at 35, is already inevitable.

And the fact is that his best reflection seemed a little prepared. In a session with 24 media outlets, there was one, Televisin Espaola, which had the first and last shift, while several media could not ask. Spanish television closed the turn: “Do you think that in Spain it is unfair with public figures, with players who have been everything? Boxes, from Iniesta, which is in Japan, from you … And Ramos responded quickly, in a well-spun speech. “We believe it and we all think it. Years go by and we have a problem as a country. I see how the Premier League veterans are honored, I see Bonucci and Chiellini in the selection … We have to rethink certain things, and that whoever succeeds not only in football, also in music or in other fields, can have the recognition he deserves. The admiration we have for outsiders we lack with ours, and I hope this changes. Not only have I suffered, but many other players as well. We have to admire more and envy less“was his last sentence, round like few others.

During the 17 minutes of conversation, the former Real Madrid center-back has been noticed with very little desire to look at the past. It so happens that this Tuesday the news was marked by the publication, in ElConfidencial, of some audios by Florentino Prez (in 2006) where she gave birth, to understand each other, to Iker Casillas and to Ral Gonzalez. Sure, the next captain after those two has been him. “To this day, I remain totally on the sidelines, I am escaped from the press, not only from the Spanish. Everything that is Madrid, Florentino … I do not want to comment on anything”he said, in an answer he had hinted at earlier. “Looking back is always a mistake, I am an adventurer and I like challenges, so here I am, in a winning project, which was the goal, where they gave me the love I needed,” he said.
