Ramos: I opted to be a footballer because it was less dangerous than bullfighting

He may not be El Matador in the ring but on the pitch the defender is as dominant as ever and insists although not every one likes Los Blancos, they are the best in the world
Spain defender Sergio Ramos claims there is no club in the world better than Real Madrid whilst he also revealed that he once dreamt of becoming a bullfighter.

The 26-year-old moved to the Spanish capital outfit seven years ago and has won numerous trophies since then, including three La Liga titles.

Now vice-captain at Real Madrid, the former Sevilla man believes that he is representing the "best club in the world" while he also admitted that becoming a professional footballer was not always his priority.

"When you're young, it is important to have dreams," he told AS.

"I always wanted to be either a bullfighter or footballer but my mother was a little scared of me becoming a bullfighter. So I opted for football which was less dangerous."

Ramos insisted that the players that have played for the club and the trophies they have won makes Madrid, in his eyes, superior to other sides.

"The identity the club has forged throughout the years makes it unique.

"It is the best club in the world even if it is not everyone's favourite. But, this is the reality. The great players who have been here and the titles they have won have given prestige to this club."
