Ramos the best defender in history, says Real Madrid coach Zidane


Sergio Ramos Real Madrid Inter 2020

Zinedine Zidane believes Real Madrid star Sergio Ramos is the best defender "in history".

The Spain international's current contract expires at the end of the season, but reports in his homeland say the club are set to offer him a two-year extension.

Madrid coach Zidane continues to be impressed by the club captain's exploits and sees him as the best ever in his position.

"The best? He is one of them, of course," Zidane told reporters. "What he has done, what he is, what he has shown in Madrid. I think he is the best in history."

Madrid suffered a setback heading into Sunday's league encounter against Valencia, as winger Eden Hazard and midfielder Casemiro tested positive for Covid-19.

Zidane confirmed the pair are not showing any coronavirussymptoms and says they are dealing well with the situation.

"Well, they're okay I think. They're not happy with what's happened but they're okay and physically they don't have many symptoms, but we know it's tough," he added.

"I left them a message and I'll speak to them later. This can happen and we have to accept that.

"You know what Hazard is like as a player. He's a strong player. It's a tough moment with injuries and everything but he's in good spirits, which is important. He has to wait a week now.

"We have to adapt to the situation. We know it could be worse.It happened to Eder Militao the other day, to Eden and Casemiro today.

"We have to accept it and keep going forward, because the strength is in the team unit. There are worse things that are happening, people are worse off elsewhere, but it's disconcerting that the training session today has been completely different the day before a game.

"It's disconcerting because you don't know what's going to happen, in what moment you're going to have positives or not and that's what's happened with these two players.

"They are responsible people but unfortunately it's happened. It could be worse. There are people in much worse situations who are really, really suffering outside of football.
