Sergio Ramos: Real Madrid star a ‘CANCER that must be removed’ – club insider




Ramos has been a vital part of the Real side during their Champions League dominance in recent years.

The centre-back has been a towering presence at the back in their three-in-a-row success in the competition.

But it now appears his influence in the dressing room has grown too big.

That’s following the comments of Football Operations and Communications Consultant Ian McGarry on the latest episode of The Transfer Window podcast.

“Ramos is a cancer in the dressing room that needs to be cut out”

Real Madrid club insider

McGarry said: “As one very much in the inside Real Madrid hierarchy put to me during my time in Spain over the last couple days, ‘Ramos is a cancer in the dressing room that needs to be cut out’.

“That is a serious, serious situation.

“As captain, as club icon that he is, getting rid of him will be very difficult.

“I think there is now a mood within the Santiago Bernabeu that whatever happens going forward, that whether it is long-term or for the rest of the season, that Ramos needs to be cut out of the club in order for any coach who is coming in to have a chance of managing the dressing room in the way they want to do.”

McGarry added Ramos could be forced out of the club to ensure a new era under a new manager, with Mauricio Pochettino of Tottenham a potential long-term replacement for the sacked Julen Lopetegui.

He added: “I would say from Real Madrid and Florentino Perez’s point of view, their Plan A is definitely see the season out with a manager who can effectively caretake till May next year on the basis they will then be able to mount a proper engagement of Mauricio Pochettino – and that means getting Ramos out of the club, and probably Marcelo as well and saying you’ve got a clean slate, and by the way you’ve got £350m to spend as well.

“And (they will) try and rebuild that great club under a very different style of manager and a different mentality of how the dressing room politics will be played out.”
