Sergio Ramos Extends an Olive Branch: A Heartfelt Apology to Sevilla Fans

Sergio Ramos, the legendary football figure, has taken a step towards reconciliation with Sevilla fans by recording a sincere video apology. This gesture marks an attempt to mend the strained relationship that has endured for years.

Ramos’ departure from Sevilla on the final day of the 2005 transfer window, for a €27 million fee to arch-rivals Real Madrid, ignited the first of many confrontations between the Sevilla faithful and the defender. At the time, Ramos was accused of deception by then-Sevilla President Jose Maria del Nido, who publicly stated that Ramos had expressed his desire to stay but ultimately paid his release clause willingly. Ramos maintains that the move was a mutual decision.

In 2018, Ramos returned to the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan and scored a brace, including a memorable Panenka penalty. His spirited celebration in front of the Sevilla fans led to a barrage of objects and insults, resulting in partial closure of the stands in the subsequent season. The club reported Ramos to the Anti-Violence Committee for his actions, while Ramos responded by stating that “part of the Sevilla fans do not deserve my respect.”

Now, as he rejoins Sevilla, Ramos aims to put these contentious incidents behind him. In his own words:

“Today is a very special day. I’m finally coming home, looking forward to wearing the Sevilla shirt and proudly displaying this badge. It’s been 18 years since I left, and I acknowledge that I’ve made mistakes. I want to take this opportunity to apologize to any Sevilla fans who may have been offended by my past actions and gestures. We’re all part of the same family, and we have too many people outside to be at odds with each other.”

“I’ve returned to contribute, to pull in the same direction, and I’m excited to don the Sevilla crest, step onto the Sanchez Pizjuan, and reunite with all of you. This wasn’t just a personal debt I had to settle; it was also a debt to my family, my grandfather who made me a Sevilla supporter from a young age, my father. It wouldn’t have made sense to choose any other path. I hope to see you all very soon. I’m here to give my best and work towards achieving our objectives with the team.”

Ramos’ move back to Sevilla appears to involve a significant salary reduction. At 37 years old, he arrives to help revitalize a Sevilla side that has endured a challenging start to La Liga, suffering defeats in their first three games.
