Ramos invites McGregor to Real Madrid training after UFC star shows off football skills


Ramos/McGregor split 2019-20

Sergio Ramos has invited UFC icon Conor McGregor to Real Madrid training after being impressed by social media footage of the retired fighter showing off his football skills.

The pair have seemingly struck up an unlikely friendship online since with McGregor in turn asking Ramos for histhoughts on Instagram along with a series of clips showing the Irishmantaking shots at goal.

While seemingly just a low-keykick about, Ramos liked what he saw from McGregor, replying: "Top class, mate! Fancy a training session at Real Madrid? More than welcome to join us anytime."

McGregor in turn accepted the offer, commenting: "My brother, thank you! The next time I am in Madrid I would be honoured."

The 32-year-old, who famously tried his hand at boxing in 2017 against Floyd Mayweather Jr., has previously admitted to being a fan of Manchester United and was a bigadmirer ofRoy Keane.

“I was more a player than a watcher back then, but Manchester United was my team," McGregor said during a Q&A withFIFA.com in 2019.

“I was attracted to the success and winning mentality of the club and people surrounded by United. Irish legends like Denis Irwin and Roy Keane were dedicated to their craft and had that winning mentality. Roy Keane was one of the best midfielders European football has ever seen. Opponents would be mentally beaten before they’d even stepped on to the pitch to face him.

"Throughout my youth, I was big into football. I played striker or midfielder. If you were to sum me up as a player, I was efficient, devastating and slick – similar to my fighting style. Skills learned at this youthful age playing football – teamwork, leadership, commitment, dedication and discipline – without a doubt transferred over into my combat sports vocation."
