Ramos returns to Sevilla

Veteran former Spain defender Sergio Ramos on Monday returned to his home-town club Sevilla after 18 years away, reports AFP.

"It's a very special day, returning home is always a tremendous joy," Ramos told the media.

The 37-year-old former Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain player signed a one-year contract after passing the traditional medical, the club announced.

Sevilla sit bottom of La Liga without a point after three matches but as Europa League champions have qualified for the Champions League group stage. They start their campaign on September 20.

Ramos left Sevilla at the age of 19 to join Real Madrid for a then record fee for a Spanish defender.

In 2021, Ramos signed for PSG but had been without a club since his contract with the French champions ran out in June.
