Sergio Ramos and Marcelo, at the FIFA FIFPro World 11 again

Sergio Ramos and Marcelo, at the FIFA FIFPro World 11 again

You’ve done it again. You’re incredible. Yesterday I had the honour of accompanying you to Zurich once again to attend The Best FIFA Football Awards ceremony. Like last year, you were both chosen by thousands of professional footballers from all over the world to join the FIFA FIFPro World 11 2016. In other words, you are among the best eleven players on the planet and that’s how you end an unforgettable 2016. As President of RR-Soccer Management Agency, it is a pride to be your agent.

Sergio, brother, there are no words I can say. Those of us who know you know that you work very hard every day, and these awards and recognitions are no coincidence. Your teammates and fans have acknowledged this: you have been the most voted in the UEFA 2016 Team of the Year and now you are again, for the seventh time (sixth time running) in the FIFA FIFPro World 11.

Marcelo, your teammates think the same as me: you are the best winger in the world. It is the third time (second time running) that you appear in the FIFA FIFPro World 11. Your effort and passion for this sport, always with a smile, make you keep up a level within the reach of very few season after season.

My sincere congratulations to both of you. Now it’s time to make history this season.

To a 2017 that’s Filled with Success!

To a 2017 that’s Filled with Success!

Although those of us who work in the world of sport tend to think in seasons, it’s always good to pause for a moment and look back at 2016, which has been a year filled with new projects for RR Soccer Management Agency.

We opened new offices in Las Palmas and Seville, the culmination of many years of hard work, adding to our office in Madrid. There is no doubt that we have excellent professionals here at RR Soccer. Your talent, ambition and enthusiasm are the pillars of this agency.

Continuing with this line of expansion, we signed a collaboration agreement with Magnus Sports, the company founded by Marc Anthony, to work together on image rights for our athletes in the American market.

Also, I don’t want to forget about women’s football, which has such potential for growth in our country. We joined Ana Rossell’s company, AR10, in an agreement to foster the growth and professionalization of a sport that is attracting more and more followers both in our country and around the world. As I said on the day we signed the agreement, we believe firmly in women’s football and we’re delighted to offer players all our services and contribute in helping the sport get the recognition and professional treatment it deserves.

Even though we’re only at the halfway point of the season, it has been a year full of success for our athletes. Sergio and Marcelo have written another page in the history books of Real Madrid by winning the Champions League, European Super Cup and Club World Cup. They were also included in the FIFPro World XI 2015. Several of our players are playing in the Segunda División. I’d also like to make special mention of the young footballers and coaches represented by RR Soccer who work every day, at all levels, to achieve their dreams.

We also appreciate the work of our partners and collaborators: Julio Senn, Víctor Alfaro, Pedro Chueca, Dr. Antonio Escribano and Francisco Escobar. Thanks to all of you and your teams, our athletes have access to a range of services that are difficult to match.

I would also like to thank the media. They also help us get our message across and give visibility to all our activities and those of our athletes. They are, without doubt, essential travel companions in the world of sport. You all know that our doors are always open for you here.

I would like to wish you all a happy and prosperous 2017. May this season be, at least, as good as the last. I hope and wish that each and every one of you enjoy good health and that, looking back in 12 months, we can say that it’s been a year to remember.

Marcelo Celebrates 10 Years at Real Madrid

Marcelo Celebrates 10 Years at Real Madrid

Ten years ago today you stepped onto the pitch at the Santiago Bernabéu for the first time on the day of your presentation; since then, you have matured and become a first rate player. Without a doubt, I am proud to be your agent and proud that you form part of RR Soccer Management Agency.

At 18, you were still a teenager when you arrived and thanks to your hard work and humility you have become one of the best defenders in the world. Since then, you have played 372 official matches, scored 26 goals and you have won everything: 2 Champions Leagues, 3 La Liga titles, 2 Copas del Rey, 2 European Super Cups, 2 Spanish Supercups and 1 Club World Cup. What’s more, you have twice been selected as part of the FIFA FIFPro World XI.

But what really makes you great is not your impressive roll of honours, but your own personality. You work hard to improve every day and always do so with a smile, the same one you showed when you started playing football in Brazil as a kid.

This morning you received a well-deserved tribute at the Santiago Bernabéu. It has been a pleasure to accompany you and share this moment with you.

And there’s still plenty of football left in your boots. Congratulations on so many years at the elite level, and I hope you continue to win trophies while enjoying this sport you are so passionate about.

Sergio Ramos Wins His 140th Cap for the Spanish National Team

Sergio Ramos, represented by René Ramos, President of RR-Soccer Management Agency, made his 140th appearance for the Spanish National Team in the match against Albania on 9 October.

The Camas-born defender made his début with the senior national team on 26 March 2005 in a friendly against China. The record for these 140 encounters is 105 (75%) wins, 17 draws and 18 defeats. In addition, Sergio has racked up 10 goals.

The current captain has become a key player for the different coaches over these years, and was a vital part of the all-conquering teams at two European Championships (Austria-Switzerland 2008 and Poland-Ukraine 2012) and one World Cup (South Africa 2010).

Congratulations, Sergio. We hope you can continue to wear the Spain shirt on many more occasions and contribute to winning more titles.

 

Juan Muñoz Makes Loan Move to Zaragoza

Juan Muñoz Makes Loan Move to Zaragoza

Juan Muñoz has completed his loan move to Real Zaragoza. The forward will spend the 2016/17 season with Los Maños on loan from Sevilla.  With the aim of furthering his development at one of the biggest clubs in the history of Spanish football, he’ll contribute his skilful play and eye for goal towards reaching the team’s objectives.  Last season, the attacker showed signs of his promise and earned a new contract with Sevilla up to 2019.

He displayed his goalscoring instinct by taking advantage of the minutes he was given, scoring twice for Sevilla: first in the Copa del Rey against Mirandés and also on the final day of La Liga against Athletic Bilbao.

A 20-year-old striker, Juan Muñoz was born in Utrera (Seville) and has been competing at a high level in the Sevilla under-age ranks since he was 16. Enthusiastic and with an eye for goal, he’ll add ambition, competitiveness and great quality to the front line at Zaragoza, who are aiming for promotion back to the top flight this year.

We wish you the very best in this new stage of your career, Juan. Playing with Zaragoza is a big challenge and a great responsibility, but we’re sure that with your ambition and hard work, you will give it your all.

May you continue to progress!

Historic Night in Milan: Sergio and Marcelo Win their Second UEFA Champions League

Historic Night in Milan: Sergio and Marcelo Win their Second UEFA Champions League

On Saturday 28 May, Real Madrid were crowned champions of Europe for the eleventh time. Sergio Ramos and Marcelo, both represented by RR Soccer Management Agency, collected their second UEFA Champions League medals.

Winning this tournament is no easy feat. Many great players have finished their careers without ever achieving the title. Winning a UEFA Champions League is within reach of very few footballers. To win two is reserved for an even more select group.

Sergio, brother, what can I tell you that you don’t know already? You deserve everything that has come your way. You never had anything handed to you and I’m sure that you’ll continue with same ambition and dedication to keep winning titles. I can’t describe the emotions we felt in the stands of the San Siro when you scored the final’s opening goal. Words are not enough. Those of us who know you are certain that you won’t drop the pace and that you will continue to compete with the same intensity and ambition as when you kicked a ball around Camas.

Marcelo, you are also a fundamental part of this Real Madrid team. I saw you suffer and grit your teeth in extra time. You gave everything up to the last drop of sweat, as you always do. You are an exemplary athlete, on and off the field, and I am especially pleased that you played in this final as a starter and you can treasure the memory of this title forever.

Sergio and Marcelo, I hope you both go on to win many more titles. It is an honour to represent you both.
