Sergio Ramos, full name Sergio Ramos García (born March 30, 1986) is a Spanish international footballer, who usually plays as a defender. A native of Camas, Seville, Ramos is a graduate of the Sevilla FC youth system.
Ramos began his career as a well-regarded right-side defender, a position he was able to keep for the majority of his early career. After two years of experience in La Liga he became known for his ability to play competently in any defensive position. He is also known for his perseverance, powerful shots and heading ability. Seville received many offers for Ramos, but it was Real Madrid who would eventually sign him.
Real Madrid signed Ramos for 27 million Euro in the summer of 2005, making him the second most expensive teenager (behind Wayne Rooney), and the most expensive domestic signing in La Liga. He usually plays at the centre of defence for Real, but has been used as a defensive midfielder in a few occasions.
In 2004 Sergio Ramos became one of the key figures in the Under-21s, playing six international matches and acquiring experience and interest from other clubs. In Salamanca, against China, he played for the senior side at only nineteen years of age, making him the youngest player to play for the national team in the last fifty-five years.
He impressed on his debut and was awarded a place on the team which would challenge Serbia and Montenegro in an important qualification match for the 2006 FIFA World Cup. Because of the absence of fellow Madrid player Míchel Salgado he was part of the starting eleven.
He is the ninth Sevilla player who later left for Real Madrid
He has several tattoos. On his right wrist is a band that has sentimental meaning to Sergio and his brother, Rene, who also has the same tattoo on his right wrist. On his left inner arm is "JM VII P." "JM" and "P" are his parents' initials. "VII," or seven, is his lucky number. On his left middle finger are his initials, "SR." Behind his left ear is the Chinese character, "wolf," which bears resemblance to his initials, "SR." On his upper back is a cartoon of a person with a football, who is grinning malevolently
He likes flamenco and bullfighting
On his nineteenth birthday, a Spanish magazine published nude photos of him. Profits from the photos was donated to victims of the 2004 South Asia Tsunami
