After the first season at Paris Saint-Germain marred by injuries, Sergio Ramos appears to be making significant progress toward regaining his form this season.
Following a season in which he didn’t get much playing time, the former Real Madrid centre-back has openly acknowledged that he finally feels at home at PSG.
“I’m very well, now I can say that I’m fine, that I’m happy,” Ramos said in an interview with Alejandro Ruiz YouTube channel ‘Ruiz Club – Free Ligue 1’.
“When you get on the pitch, you see everything differently. In the end, you adapt and it’s good to live experiences and get to know other cultures.
“Paris welcomed me very well, the fans and the people, so I’m very happy to receive the affection of other countries.”
After scoring 17 goals and winning all three of their Ligue 1 games this season, PSG drew 1-1 with Monaco at home, and Ramos believes the team must continue to improve.
“In the end it shows you that there are no easy opponents, it looks like you can beat any opponent but the teams make it difficult for you,” Ramos added.
“The important thing is to keep on winning. We would have liked to take all three points but it wasn’t the case.
“There are things we need to keep improving as a team and keep adapting.
“I’m not happy at all [with the result], but having come back, although we were losing, is always positive.
“We have to keep growing, keep improving and we have to think about the next game.”
Ramos insisted that he is at ease playing in the three-man defence that Christophe Galtier, the coach, has established since being hired earlier this summer.
“I feel good, it’s a formation that we’ve been working on since the start of pre-season,” Ramos noted.
“We feel comfortable giving that security and defensive stability up front.
“Little by little we’ll get to know each other better, we’ll be exploiting our defensive virtues to be able to benefit up front.”
