Madrid: Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos revealed on Monday that he wants to finish his playing days at the Santiago Bernabeu, as he released a book about his ongoing career.
"I hope to take my retirement one day with Real Madrid," stated the Spanish international, who was part of the 2010 World Cup and European championship winning sides in 2008 and 2012.
"I am currently 26 and I am in the middle of my career but I hope to publish another book like this one and that people remember me as a man with 'heart, character and passion' (the title of the book)," said Ramos.
The back-four stalwart who can play both in central defence or at right-back arrived at Real from Sevilla in 2005 and has since gone on to win three Spanish titles and the Spanish Cup although the Champions League continues to elude the club since their last victory over Bayer Leverkusen in 2002.
