Real Madrid president Florentino tribute to 500-game Ramos

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has paid tribute to Sergio Ramos after he reached 500 games.

Pérez handed Ramos a commemorative shirt for the captain's 500 official matches with the Whites. The player from Seville is the twelfth player in the history of the club to reach this number of matches.

Ramos said, "It is an important and special number, to play so many games is a privilege and a dream, to do it as captain is a bonus and makes it mean more to me.

"It seems like yesterday when I came from Sevilla and was I a child, but time passes very quickly and hopefully I can play a lot more games.

"There are several players who have played more the 500 games for Real Madrid and they are legends of the club. It is a goal and a daily challenge to continue to give my all to enjoy many more years representing this team. Wearing this shirt has been one of my dreams since many years ago and I want to carry on, giving my best for as long as possible."
