Real Madrid and Spain captain Sergio Ramos reportedly wants to be a part of the Spain squad that goes to the Olympics in 2020. The defender has won every trophy there is to win in international and club football – barring the Confederations Cup and the Olympics.
As a result, he might be keen on winning one of the last few trophies that he is yet to win and going to the Olympics, where usually a Under-23 side is sent, will give him a chance to do that.
According to a source close to the player, he would be excited with a chance to go to Tokyo for the Olympics.
"If the chance to go to Tokyo comes up, it would be tremendously exciting for him," is the view of those close to the player, as per Marca.
Ramos is a legend of the game. He has played 167 times for Spain – the most by any player, equaled only by Iker Casillas – and a whopping 615 times for Real Madrid. As a result, Spain's Under-21 coach Luis de la Fuente has expressed his pride at the report of Ramos wanting to take part in the Olympics but also added that he is not thinking about it right now.
"It's a pride for us that Sergio Ramos wants to be in the Games but now I don't think about that, it's still far away; when he arrives the moment will be thought, I admire Ramos and I am delighted that he wants to be with us ".
