Sergio Ramos made the first of his many Real Madrid appearances as a half time substitute on the 10th of September 2005 against Celta Vigo. The defender joined Real from Sevilla for €27 million in the summer of 2005 and went on to cement himself as Real Madrid’s key man at the back for the next decade and a half. Ramos moved to Real Madrid at the ripe age of 19, he would go on to score 106 goals from centre back making him the top scoring defender in the clubs history winning the Champions League and La Liga four times in the process.
On to his debut against Celta, Ramos was introduced at half time with the score at a disappointing 2-2. Real Madrid boss Wanderley Luxemburgo made the decision to hook Pavon and make history by bringing on the 19 year old Sergio Ramos. Real Madrid were set up in the Brazilian 4-2-2-2 against Celta Vigo and started with Iker Casillas in goal, Roberto Carlos at left back, Michel Salgado at right back with Ivan Helguera and Francisco Pavon in central defence. A midfield four of David Beckham, Thomas Gravesen, captain Guti and Julio Baptista. Then the Brazilian front two of Ronaldo and Robinho in attack.
So far at Real Madrid, Ramos has played with a number of World Class stars – Zinedine Zidane, Toni Kroos, Luka Modric, Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale, Karim Benzema, Marcelo, Raul, Ruud van Nistelrooy, Gonzalo Higuaín, Wesley Sneijder, Pepe, Fabio Cannavaro, Kaká and Ángel Di María. But Ramos has been lucky to be part of Spain’s golden generation including Xavi, Iniesta, Busquets, Xabi Alonso and Pique.
