Ramos dares NTs to top Spain's accomplishments

Sergio Ramos dares other National Teams to top Spain's achievements

February 26, 2015 By Oscar Rojas
The Spanish defender also praised Real Madrid's coach Carlo Ancelotti, referring to the Italian as one of the most influencial managers in his career.

Spanish defender Sergio Ramos shared his thoughts about last year's accomplishments with Real Madrid and his complicated year defending La Roja's jersey. The Andalucian center back believes that his National Team would have had a better World Cup if they had more time to rest prior to the competition, while he challenged other teams to try and win all they won in the past few years.

"It’s true that it was a very intense year, full of very gruelling games, and perhaps we weren’t in the best shape when we got to Brazil. It’s also clear that we’d been successful for several years, and you can’t keep winning matches and titles forever. We were able to enjoy a unique period and an extraordinary generation of footballers. We were crowned world champions and were twice European champions. Let’s see if anyone else can match that," Ramos stated.

Real Madrid's Number 4 gave his National team some credit for Germany's success during the past World Cup, since the Germans were on the losing side against La Roja for many years before tasting glory in Brazil.

"We came up against Germany in almost every tournament, they’re the team that, in inverted commas, were hurt most by us, so perhaps they’re the ones who learned the most too," the defender added.

"Ancelotti is one of the most influential coaches in my career"

Ramos has developed a good relationship with Carlo Ancelotti. The Spanish defender even has claimed "Carletto" was crucial for the team's success in 2014 after enduring Jose Mourinho's regime for three years. During an interview with FIFA.com, the player even recognized Ancelotti as one of the most influential managers in his prosperous career.

He’s a coach who takes you aside, talks to you and makes everything as smooth as possible, both on a professional and personal level. That’s the key to success, which is why he’s a truly great coach. In my view, he’s one of the two best I’ve had in my whole career. There’s Luis Aragones, then you have Joaquin Caparros, who really believed in me when I was a nobody," Ramos concluded.
