Yesterday I had the opportunity to travel to Zurich (Switzerland) for the Ballon d’Or and FIFA/FIFProWorld XI 2015 award ceremony.
Sergio Ramos and Marcelo, both of whom I represent, have been selected by professional footballers all over the world that make up the International Federation of Professional Footballers (FIFPro) to be included in the FIFPro World XI 2015.
It is particularly gratifying for me that they have been selected by their own fellow professionals. In Sergio’s case, this is his sixth inclusion. How time flies, brother! So much has happened since you first received this accolade in 2008. Without a doubt, this is recognition of your hard work and consistency over all these years. It’s not easy to stay at such a high level for so many seasons.
This is Marcelo’s second inclusion. Your passion for football makes you unique on and off the pitch. I’m so pleased by this award and hope it helps you maintain the same level of ambition and motivation you demonstrate season after season.
My warmest congratulations to both of you, this recognition is the fruit of the work you both put in every day. Wishing you a season in which you continue to achieve further success.
