Real Madrid defender Militao tribute to departing teammate Ramos

Real Madrid defender Eder Militao has paid tribute to departing teammate Sergio Ramos.

Ramos' contract comes to an end on June 30 and both he and the club have confirmed that he will move on this summer.

"It's a shame that [Ramos] has left, because he was a guy who was incredible for the group," Militao said at a press conference whilst on international duty with Brazil.

Militao noted that Ramos is a "legend" and that he has learnt "a lot" from him over the last two years.

The 23-year-old said that he had no words to describe "everything that Ramos has done" for "football and for the history of Real Madrid."

"Now I wish him happiness and that he has a good career wherever he goes," Militao added.
