Sergio Ramos who was named champions League Defender of the Season for the second year running, insists Real Madrid remains Real Madrid irrespective of who comes or leave, the club will always be bigger than every individual.
“The UEFA Champions League is always a special competition and last season we were able to remind people of that. We did this by winning this trophy three tomes in a row” He said.
