He then returned to his former team Sevilla, this summer.

In the video, Sergio Ramos signed various shirts for a fan but declined to sign a Real Madrid shirt, distancing himself from his former club. Despite being a legend there, he swiftly moved on. Ramos later explained on social media that he had already signed several Royal White shirts for the fan and didn’t want them auctioned. Hence, he chose not to sign another one. Ramos explained on his X account and said:

Before that moment I had already signed about 6 Real Madrid shirts. And then there are people who auction them or sell them on the internet.

Despite Ramos’s remarkable tenure at Real Madrid, his departure from the club was somewhat unusual. This might suggest a desire to distance himself from his Madrid legacy. However, it is hoped that he will eventually embrace and appreciate the team he played a significant role in building at the Bernabeu.
