Also speaking after the game, the Spanish captain it’s a huge blessing for players to set foot on the pitch again.
The skipper said the team was in good shape after working hard in recent weeks to recover some of the form lost due to the long break. He also said the 13-time Champions League winners have gradually started to get back into a rhythm and to play as well.
“It’s no surprise it wasn’t a wonderful performance and we have things we can improve. Physically the team was fine, you can expect to play with the intensity we showed in the first 45 minutes for the full 90. We dropped off a bit and left more spaces, but we’ll learn from it going into our 10 remaining game,” he added.
Speaking of getting the maximum points, Ramos said it great for the team from a morale perspective. According to him, what’s next is to get back to training for the next match which is on Thursday against Valencia at their temporary home.
He also revealed that he picked up a bit of a knock, which is just a strain, but he is happy to be back and to have got all three points.
Coronavirus strange – Sergio Ramos
Speaking of the coronavirus pandemic that left about 500,000 people dead globally, Ramos described the situation as a bit strange and condoled with all that have suffered one loss of lives or the other as a result of the pandemic.
“It’s been a strange situation, in the early months of not being able to leave the house, you focus on the positive things like enjoying your family”.
Speaking on the new FIFA rule that accommodates five substitutions in a game due to the tight schedule, Ramos believes it is beneficial for everyone.
“Because of the extreme temperatures we’re going to face and the stage of the season we’re at, it’s positive for everyone”.
