'Ramos' tackle on Salah a masterstroke'


Juventus star Giorgio Chiellini has labelled Sergio Ramos the best defender in the world and praised the Spaniard's 'masterstroke' by injuring Mohamed Salah.

Ramos has been playing at a top level for many years and is one of the most decorated footballers in Spanish history following his success with Real Madrid and Spain.

While many feel Ramos has a dark side as evident by his red card tally, Chiellini believes the Spaniard is very technical.

“He’s the best defender in the world,” read a new excerpt from his new autobiography, leaked by AS.

“They say he’s impulsive, not tactical at all, that 8-10 goals are conceded each season through his mistakes, that he’s very technical and that he could be a striker, which is the opposite of me.

“However, he has two characteristics that almost no-one else has. He knows how to be decisive in big games, with interventions that go beyond any logic, that even cause injuries with almost devilish wit.

“The one on Salah in the 2018 Champions League Final was a masterstroke. He’s always said that he didn’t do it on purpose, knowing that nine times out of ten, falling like he did and by not letting go, he risked breaking his opponent’s arm.”
