Before stepping onto the pitch and addressing the fans, the defender held a press conference, emphasizing his desire to win titles with his favorite club. He expressed his feelings saying: “When the time comes to think about returning, it’s a very sentimental and emotional question, it’s the realization of a dream, the closing of a cycle and the reconnection with a crowd that saw me grow. Now, we want to consolidate this in sporting terms.”
Ramos added: “Before ending my career, I would like to achieve something significant with my favorite team, Sevilla Fútbol Club. I hope I can contribute with my best performance to achieve the team’s objectives, which would be an unforgettable experience for me. “
