Luca Zidane Promoted to Primera División with Rayo Vallecano
French goalkeeper Luca Zidane, represented by René Ramos, President of RR-Soccer Management Agency, has been promoted to the Spanish top flight with Rayo Vallecano. Luca played all four promotion play-off games for the Madrid side and played a crucial part in achieving the club’s objective of promotion. Luca was a stand-out performer in the second leg of the final, keeping a clean sheet in a game that saw the team from Vallecas complete a dramatic comeback.
It means that La Franja are back competing among the elite of Spanish football, returning to the Primera División after two seasons in Segunda.
Congratulations, Luca! Persistence, hard work and mental strength. Your success is well deserved!
Oscar Rodriguez’s big week: he signs for Sevilla FC and goes with the National Team
Óscar Rodríguez, represented by René Ramos, president of RR-Soccer Management Agency, is in luck. In just a few days he has seen how his two good seasons at CD Leganés have earned him a contract with Sevilla FC and a first call from the national team directed by Luis Enrique.
The Spaniard has signed with Sevilla FC for five seasons in which he is sure to bring out all his qualities: handling of the ball and spaces, ability to pass… and, of course, that great shot that characterizes him. Óscar arrives at the current Europa League champion, a competition the club has already won a total of six times, after two seasons on loan at CD Leganés and after in Real Madrid’s youth teams. Sevilla is, without a doubt, a demanding and victorious club that will allow him to show and develop all his virtues.
But the good news for our midfielder does not end here. Practically only one year after making his debut with the Under-21 team, with which he also scored an important goal against Israel, the 22-year-old footballer has been called up by Luis Enrique for the absolute national team. Today he will meet for the first time with the coach and his teammates for the UEFA Nations League matches against Germany and Ukraine.
Congratulations, Óscar! Things don’t happen by chance, they happen as a result of work, effort and commitment. Let’s keep working and pushing!
2019/20 season review for players represented by RR-Soccer Agency
The 2019/2020 season has come to an end in Europe’s major leagues and it is one that, unfortunately, will stay in our memories. With competition interrupted for three months by the COVID-19 pandemic, competitive action returned behind closed doors but with a fervent enthusiasm that helped a stricken society move forward. The players represented by the René Ramos, President of RR-Soccer Management Agency, contributed to that, standing out in a tough and difficult campaign. Let’s look back with a review of their seasons.
In a season filled with difficulties for CD Leganés, ending in relegation for Los Pepineros, Óscar took on great responsibility and has grown as a footballer. He ended the season as the team’s top scorer with nine goals, accounting for almost a third of CD Leganés’s total goal haul. A number of those goals were crucial in the club’s fight for survival which lasted right to the very end. He was also called up to the Spain Under-21 team, scoring the equaliser in a 1-1 draw with Israel in a European Under-21 Championship qualifier.
In his third season with the Real Betis Balompié first team, Loren had his most prolific season to date with ten goals, making him top scorer for Los Verdiblancos. The Marbella-born forward, represented by René Ramos, President of RR-Soccer Management Agency, continues to grow and improve year after year.
José was able to impose himself in a difficult first half of the season with CD Leganés before moving to CA Osasuna in January, where he was able to find a place and get valuable playing time under his belt in an impressive season for the team from Navarra. He also scored two goals, one in an historic victory over FC Barcelona at the Camp Nou.
Jorge made a deserved debut in the Primera División, signing for Valencia CF who agreed a loan deal with RC Celta de Vigo. The season was a valuable learning experience for the future and Jorge demonstrated that he’s up to the challenge in a squad with plenty of quality. He played six games in La Liga, four of them in the final stretch, gaining valuable points for the team’s survival in the division. He responded when the team needed him in a difficult situation and that shows his worth.
Juan spent the season at CD Leganés on loan from Sevilla FC and showed his character and ability to perform at the highest level. He played 11 games in La Liga and three in the Copa del Rey in a year that will help him to continue to develop.
José Joaquín Matos
Another player represented by René Ramos, President of RR-Soccer Management Agency, José Joaquín Matos was able to overcome difficulty this season. He was loaned by Cádiz CF to FC Twente in the Dutch Eredivisie and started for the team in the first two league games before a serious injury put him out of action for several months. With his first overseas experience behind him and having recovered from injury, a bright future beckons.
Sergio Ramos lifts his fifth league title
The Real Madrid and Spanish national team captain, represented by René Ramos, President of RR-Soccer Management Agency continues to add to his legendary status. In the strangest of seasons and a difficult one for football and for all of society, disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic and the lockdown which brought the competition to a halt for three months, Sergio was able to tackle an unknown situation and lead the response of Real Madrid.
The captain completed his highest scoring season ever with 11 goals; six of them in the 11 matches played post-lockdown, and lifted the league title, having already won the Spanish Supercup earlier in the season. This season also saw him become the most capped player in the history of the Spanish national team, reach 650 appearances for Real Madrid (with 22 titles in that time, just one short of Paco Gento’s record) and also surpass the 100-goal mark in the white shirt. Sergio, there are no words.
SERGIO RAMOS AND MARCELO SELECTED IN FIFA FIFPRO WORLD11 2018
Defenders Sergio Ramos and Marcelo Vieira have once again been selected in the FIFA FIFPro World11 2018. René Ramos, President of RR-Soccer Management Agency and agent for both players accompanied the pair to the The Best FIFA Football Awards gala held at the Royal Festival Hall in London.
It is Sergio’s ninth, his eighth consecutive, selection in this eleven, which recognises the best players of the 2017-2018 season, voted for by almost 25,000 professional players from 65 countries. It is, without doubt, a great illustration of his consistency and hard work year after year.
For his part, Marcelo was included in the list for fifth time (fourth consecutive). It is a more than deserved reward for his performance on the pitch and his consistency.
Congratulations to both of you and I hope continued to achieve your objectives this season and continue to make history.
SERGIO RICO JOINS FULHAM FC
The Spanish international goalkeeper, represented by René Ramos’s RR-Soccer Management Agency has joined Fulham FC. The international keeper will spend the 2018/2019 season on loan to the English side from Sevilla FC.
Sergio Rico made his Primera División debut with Sevilla in 2014 and has won the Europa League on two occasions, in 2015 and 2016.
At 24 years of age, Sergio Rico tremendously excited about taking on this new challenge with a historic club newly promoted to the Premier League. The best of luck on your new adventure, Sergio.
Sergio Ramos and Marcelo Continue to Make History, Winning their Fourth UEFA Champions League
Sergio Ramos and Marcelo Vieira, represented by René Ramos, President of RR-Soccer Management Agency, were crowned UEFA Champions League winners on 26 May after Real Madrid defeated Liverpool by 3 goals to 1. It is the third consecutive year they have lifted the trophy, adding to the titles won in Cardiff and Milan. It is, without a doubt, an unprecedented achievement in the history of football.
Sergio made 11 appearances in this season’s UEFA Champions League, with 98 interceptions, one goal and passing accuracy of 93%. The Camas-born central defender is fundamental to the Real Madrid team and has been included in the Team of the Season chosen by a team of UEFA Technical Observers.
For his part, Marcelo also played 11 games, making 47 interceptions and scoring 3 goals. The Brazilian full back was also included in the UEFA Champions League Team of the Season 17/18.
Both players have written a new page in the history of this sport, each now with four UEFA Champions League medals, an achievement reached by very few.
Congratulations to you both. I am very proud of you.

MAY ALL YOUR DREAMS COME TRUE IN 2018
Even though we find ourselves at the half-way point of the season, it’s time to take a look back and take stock of the calendar year. 2017 has been another year to remember for RR-Soccer Management Agency.
We’ve consolidated our activity in the offices in Seville and Las Palmas, inaugurated in 2016. Along with our head office in Madrid, we now have the best team of people to offer a quality service to all our athletes.
2017 was also an unforgettable year for our players. Sergio Ramos and Marcelo, two of our athletes, wrote another page in the history books of Real Madrid, winning the League, UEFA Champions League, European Super Cup, Spanish Supercup, and the FIFA Club World Cup. Both now have 18 honours each with the club, which places them in fifth place in the list of the most successful Real Madrid players of all time in terms of trophies won. These are truly incredible figures and we hope to add to them in the New Year.
At present, we have several players established in the Primera División, including Alexander Szymanowski at CD Leganés and Juankar at Málaga CF (no doubt we’ll see you back on the pitch again soon). I also want to highlight the performances of our athletes in the Segunda División (among them, José Arnaiz, who joined us this year) and in other categories (Óscar Rodríguez, who also joined RR-Soccer in 2017), who are competing every day to achieve their objectives in this beautiful game. To all of you; thank you for trusting in RR-Soccer to manage your careers. You know that in us you have a partner for any need.
During 2017 we have continued our commitment to women’s football, one of our main strategic focusses. We have several athletes competing at the highest level both here in Spain and in leagues overseas.
I also wanted to highlight the work of our partners: the team at Senn, Ferrero, Asociados Sports & Entertainment; Podoactiva; Pedro Chueca; Dr. Antonio Escribano; Francisco Escobar and everyone behind this big family. Thank you for accompanying me in the day-to-day of this dream.
This year, I also had the opportunity to visit Peru alongside Sergio and UNICEF. There, we were able to see first-hand the situation for many children living in precarious conditions as a result of flooding but who, in spite of their situation, are capable of breaking out a smile and approaching each day with happiness. Without a doubt, it was a journey I will remember for my entire life and in which we could learn to be happy with very little.
And so an exciting 2018 awaits; full of challenges and new international expansion projects, among them the opening of a very special new office in Latin America. I hope and wish that it is a year filled with health and happiness, and may all your dreams come true.
All the best,
President, RR-Soccer Management Agency
