In a poignant turn of events, Spanish football veteran Sergio Ramos announced his exit from Paris Saint Germain (PSG). The news of his departure was revealed by the club itself, expressing its gratitude towards the former Real Madrid superstar for his time with the 'Saints'
The 37-year-old football maestro, known for his leadership prowess and football acumen, is set to step onto the field for PSG for the last time against Clermont.
A Farewell Marking 58 Appearances
The game against Clermont will mark Ramos' 58th appearance for the Paris-based club, a fitting bookend to a distinguished stint that commenced with his arrival in Paris as a free agent.
Ramos acknowledged the forthcoming transition in his life, stating, "Tomorrow is a special day, tomorrow I will say goodbye to another stage of my life, goodbye to @PSG_inside." He expressed gratitude for the two-year tenure during which he was able to participate in every tournament and deliver his utmost.
The Spanish stalwart reminisced about his time at PSG, saying, "I don't know how many places you can feel at home, but without a doubt, PSG, its fans, and Paris have been one of them for me." This profound statement speaks volumes about the emotional ties he established during his time in the French capital.
Mañana será un día especial, mañana diré adiós a otra etapa de mi vida, adiós al @PSG_espanol.
No sé en cuántos lugares uno puede sentirse como en casa pero, sin duda, el PSG, su afición y París han sido uno de ellos para mí.
A Legacy of Leadership and Professionalism
Nasser El Khelaifi, President of PSG, highlighted Ramos' indelible imprint on the club. He underscored the player's leadership, team spirit, and professionalism as pivotal elements that make him a true football legend.
His departure will indeed leave an irreplaceable void in the team's spirit. Ramos' future prospects remain unclear, stirring speculation about his potential move to Saudi Arabia. Rumors suggest that he may join forces with former teammate from Real, Cristiano Ronaldo, at Al-Nassr.
Nonetheless, no confirmations have been made as of yet.
A Farewell Shared with Messi
Interestingly, the match against Clermont will not only be Ramos' last with PSG, but will also mark Lionel Messi's final game for the club.
Messi awaits an impending partial reconstruction of the Parisian club, which has struggled to make a significant impact in the Champions League. This summer is set to bring substantial changes for PSG, bidding farewell to two of its brightest stars.
