Ramos: Zidane's Exit Was A Bitter End To Season

Real Madrid and Spain captain Sergio Ramos has reflected on the past season, and admitted that Zinedine Zidane's decision to quit Los Blancos was a "bitter" way to end the campaign.

The 32-year-old was in good form for most of Real’s 2017/18 season, especially in the UEFA Champions League, a trophy the club lifted for the 13th time in May.

In a recent social media post, Ramos noted that there were great highs and many lows in this past campaign, with Zidane's surprising exit being one of them.

"Today our season ends and it's time to look back on the season as a whole," he wrote in an Instagram post.

"Don't think we don't analyse things and that we're not conscious of our mistakes and of what we got right.

"We are, and all the more because of the difference it makes to all of you who follow us and support us. We live everything with passion and with responsibility.

"With Real Madrid it was a season with lows, that is certainly true, but also one great high. In domestic competitions we were unsuccessful, but we conquered Europe, winning the Champions League for the third year in a row, which was an historic achievement.

"Zidane's goodbye was a bitter way to follow it up, but everyone is free to make their own decisions. We'll be forever thankful to our coach."
