Sergio Ramos should be
considered a contender for
the Ballon d’Or, according
to former Real Madrid
defender Manuel Sanchis.
The 28-year-old scored
twice in the Champions League semi-final second-
leg victory over Bayern Munich and then headed
home a dramatic injury-time equaliser against
Atletico Madrid in the final.

award for the last six years, but Sanchis believes the
time has come for the Madrid defender to be
recognised for his efforts at both ends of the pitch.
Sanchis said: “We’ve known for a long time that
Ramos is the best defender in the world, I’ve never
doubted that.
“I already put him amongst the candidates for the
Ballon d’Or. A player of his quality and performance
has to be considered.
“I have a theory that teams are built from back to
front. The centre of defence is crucial because you
have the ability to dictate and Sergio influences
because his game is not only defence. He’s a
complete player.”
Ramos joined Madrid from Sevilla in 2005 and has

He has also enjoyed incredible success with Spain,
having won the World Cup once and European
Championship twice.
