INTERVIEW | 17/08/2015“Extending my contract is a dream come true and a commitment as I will be the team captain", he added.
Sergio Ramos spoke to Realmadrid TV and Realmadrid.com following his contract extension with the club until 2020. The defender spoke about his new era as a Madrid player: "It is a challenge and I am really excited about tackling the final stage of my contract with Real Madrid. You cannot ask more from life; five years to win the maximum number of titles possible and the chance for me to lift them after being here for so long".
What is Rafa Benítez like to judge from what you have seen during the preseason?
He is a highly-skilled manager, with a lot of football knowledge and experience. He has won things with practically all of the teams he has been at, and in that sense in he gets the most out of players. He is very demanding and can contribute a lot of good things to the side. I hope that with Benítez we can begin a really good period with titles at Real Madrid.
As the Real Madrid captain, what do you have to say to Madrid fans and what are the aims?
Real Madrid always has to fight for every title. I feel proud that I will end my sporting and professional career at Real Madrid. It is a commitment and a really big responsibility, but I also think that it is really nice. I hope that we can win lots of titles this year because it would be a sign that the work has been done well, and that we are getting back to where we want to be, which is celebrating in Cibeles.
