Sergio Ramos is the big absentee in Spain’s Euro 2020 squad. Luis Enrique has relinquished the captain of Spain, the heart of Real Madrid’s defense, who has participated in four World Cup tournaments and three Europeans.
According to the Spanish coach, Sergio Ramos was not in a physical condition to compete in the competition: “He could not compete or train. I called you yesterday, it was hard and difficult. It helps selecting a lot and can do it again in the future, but I am looking for the benefit of the combination. He told me to recover well to play with his club and the national team. ”
Since the start of 2021, Sergio Ramos has played only five games for Real Madrid: two in January, followed by a two-month absence, two in March and the last on May 5, in the Champions League semi-finals, against Chelsea. .
The central defender underwent surgery in January 2021 to address an issue with the inner meniscus of his left knee. He came back in March, but on April 1, he had an inner twin muscle injury to his left leg. On May 8, after the match against Chelsea, Real Madrid reported that Sergio Ramos had injured a tendon in the knee in his left leg.
In Luis Enrique’s squad of 24 players, there is no place for Real Madrid, which is what the coach underestimates. “If Carvajal and Sergio Ramos were okay, they would have arrived. I’m not making the list because of that, ”the technician guarantees.
Pedro Boro (Sporting) was also not called up, while Emeric Laporte (Manchester City), who was born in France and represented Gallec in the youth team, made his debut with Spain.
