Ramos, Man of the Match in the European Super Cup final

NEWS | 09/08/2016

“To start the season winning a trophy is always incredible”, said the Whites' captain.
It had to be him, Sergio Ramos, was again decisive in a final. When everything looked lost, he made the most of a cross from Lucas Vázquez to score with his head in the 93rd minute, taking the game in to extra-time. The madridista captain, just like in the Undécima, was chosen as the best player in the European Super Cup. The man of the finals appeared again as he helped win the first trophy of the season.

"It's incredible. Until the game is over you have to keep fighting, because fighting until the end brings the rewards and the cross from Lucas made it a pleasure to put away. Above all, we must highlight the collective effort and fight. The team, despite the absences, turned up today and to start the season winning a trophy is always incredible".

Analysis
“The game had different phases. At the start we had a Madrid who dominated, although after getting the goal we dropped back. In the second half they dominated, we've got things to keep working on to go in to La Liga in the best shape possible”.

Despite the absences we showed up with young players and we are worthy winners.

“It's important to give your all. The DNA of Madrid is to fight. Whenever there is that margin, that second and that minute, you have to stand up. This is what I’ve learnt since I came here. Personally I’m very happy, despite the penalty. I was lucky enough to draw the game level. Despite the absences, we have shown up with young players and we are worthy winner of the Super Cup”.
 
Goals in the 93rd minute
“Yes, with respect to the Atlético and Sevilla fans, there are unique moments in life and I'm delighted to be a part of these moments. Tomorrow I will remember it better and I will enjoy it because at the minute everything is going really fast”.

Leagues
“Now is not the time for regrets, we've just won the Super Cup. We would have liked to have won more leagues but now is the time to enjoy winning the Super Cup. There are teams that do well in the league, but we are ready to compete with them. It's a European title and it's difficult to get here and you must give it the importance that it deserves”.
