Prior to the coronavirus pandemic putting world football on hold, we were witnessing one of the most exciting LaLiga title races in some time, with Real Madrid just two points behind Barcelona with 11 games to play.
Real Madrid are also stuck having to wait to play their pivotal Champions League second-leg clash, with Manchester City having beaten the Spaniards 2-1 in Madrid back at the end of February.
After claiming Supercopa de España success in Saudi Arabia back in January, Sergio Ramos is salivating over the prospect of bringing home more silverware.
“Everyone’s health is not going to be put at risk. I am looking forward to playing again, returning to compete, playing in LaLiga and the Champions League,” he told AS while hosting Ramos UNICEF Day.
“I am hungry to end the season with a title, but first we have to wait for the people who know about all of this to make the appropriate decisions.”
Spain has been one of the hardest-hit countries by the coronavirus, with nearly a quarter of a million reported cases and over 23,000 deaths so far.
With the curve starting to flatten, Ramos has urged the Spanish people to carry on by continuing to adhere to the appropriate guidelines.
“We can’t think that everything has already been achieved yet, the seriousness of the matter is still with us,” the defender said.
“We have to comply with the guidelines in order to end this virus and give scientists the time to find a vaccine.”
