Sergio Ramos, the incredible statistic


By: Manu Tournoux

Sevilla FC failed to get anything out of their postponed match against Atletico Madrid, but Sergio Ramos shone.

Ramos has indeed found the net again in La Liga, the former Real Madrid player rising higher than everyone to score the third goal. Ramos, 37, has always had an eye for goal, but the distance that separates him from other central defenders is staggering in that regard. Diario AS notes that the Andalusian has scored 138 goals during his career, the highest number of goals of any central defender in the 21st century. His closest competitors are John Terry and Naldo, who both have 73 pawns to their name respectively.

Jiri Jarosik and Branislav Ivanovic (66), Daniel van Buyten (64) and Gerard Piqué (63) follow them. However, the gap is even more marked in the air. Of these total goals, Ramos scored 70 with his head, which is also a record for the 21st century.

No player has as many and, with 4 goals in 15 matches for Sevilla FC, he remains a threat. The veteran center back arrived with plenty of doubts at his former club, but overall his performances have been a bright spot for the Nervionenses during a rather bleak season. Under the leadership of Sanchez Flores, Sevilla FC started with a three-man defense, and it seems that Ramos will be at the heart of this system for a very long time to come.
