Sergio Ramos, Real Madrid captain, has announced his departure when his contract expires at the end of June putting an end to 16 years relationship with the club. On Thursday, a press conference will be conducted to formally announce the captain’s departure after 16 years in the Madrid capital, with Real Madrid president Florentino Perez expected to be present beside the Spaniard as the defense bids farewell. “Real Madrid announces that tomorrow, Thursday, June 17, at 12:30 pm, there will be an institutional gesture of respect and farewell to our captain Sergio Ramos, with the presence of our president Florentino Perez,” read a short statement on the club’s official website. “After that, Sergio Ramos will appear before the media at a telematic press conference.” He played 671 games for the club, scoring 101 goals, won five league titles, two Copa del Reys, four Champions Leagues, and four Club World Cups during his 16 years there.

He was Pérez’s first Spanish signing as President, and he went on to win 22 trophies with the club.
