Real Madrid were crowned European champions for the twelfth time on Saturday June 3 with a 4-1 victory over Juventus in the UEFA Champions League final in Cardiff. Both Sergio Ramos and Marcelo Vieira, represented by René Ramos, President of RR-Soccer Management Agency, played in the final and added Europe’s elite title to their honours for the third time in their careers.
Sergio Ramos continues to make history. The Camas-born central defender was once again a key piece in what was his third European Cup, with 11 appearances, 2 goals and 106 interceptions. Sergio also became the first captain to raise the Champions League trophy in consecutive years.
For his part, Marcelo Vieira continues to consolidate his status as the best left back in the world. The Brazilian played 11 matches in this year’s tournament, again reaffirming his position as the lynchpin of the left flank of Zinedine Zidane’s team.
And so ends a season to remember, with the two defenders collecting La Liga and UEFA Champions League honours, adding more medals to their cabinets and cementing their status as two legendary players.
Congratulations to both.
