There are 3 kinds of footballers.
1. Journeymen who seek success in every league there is.
2. Players willing to leave their club, in return for more playing time, trophies, money etc.
3. One club men, who stick with their club in good and bad times and in most cases, end up as local legends.
This piece is about the players who belong in the 3rd category. In the age where one’s career is defined by the number of trophies he won or the amount of money he made, players rarely consider a factor called LOYALTY while making up their mind to leave. But there are a few players who look set to retire at their current clubs. Players who place their club’s interests above theirs at all times. Players who are expected to get behind their club in the face of all odds. Here are 5 such names.
5. Sergio Ramos
Inspiring a comeback in the UCL final, scoring the equalizer in the El Clasico, shutting out quality attacks to steal an undeserved 3 points, Sergio Ramos has done it all during his time at Real Madrid. The Los Blancos captain has made over 500 appearances for the club, since arriving from Sevilla in 2005. Not only does Ramos regularly bail Madrid out of difficult situations with his defensive skill set, he also scores when his team needs it the most. The Spanish international has scored 50 goals in the La Liga alone. A true leader and a nightmare for strikers, it is safe to assume that Ramos will end his career at the Bernabeu.
