In an interview to Amazon Sport TV the Real Madrid football star Sergio Ramos was asked who he prefers between Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal. Ramos replied: "Rafael Nadal, because he is a friend of mine. I am a frustrated tennis player at heart."
On the criticism he got after the 2018 Champions League final, Ramos added: "That's part of my life, I have to face it. I respect everyone's opinion and it's true that sometimes people judge me on a bad note.
But you do not have to think about it. The situation with Salah, especially in England, made a lot of people think in a different way about me. But I am calm. I would never hurt a colleague of mine intentionally." Asked what he wants to do once his career is over, Ramos replied: "I think I have some years left to perform on a big note at the Real Madrid and in the National team.
I can only say that I want to stay in touch with the world of sports. That's the world I want to live into." Asked who were his childhood idols, Ramos replied: "As a kid I just wanted to become a football star, an attacker, score.
I looked at Ronaldo, Claudio Caniggia - also because of his long hair - and Hernan Crespo. When I grew up, I changed position and I switched to defence, because I liked Paolo Maldini, Fernando Hierro and others."
