Sergio Ramos speaks on replacing Ronaldo as Real Madrid’s penalty taker

Real Madrid captain, Sergio Ramos, has expressed his delight at replacing Cristiano Ronaldo as the team’s penalty taker.

Ramos took over spot-kick duties for Madrid, after Ronaldo left the LaLiga giants for Juventus last summer.

The defender has already scored 10 goals this season, his equal most in a campaign.

“I’ve taken on the role after Cristiano’s departure and I’m delighted to do so.

“It [the ‘Panenka’] is a way to take them, but I never want to offend a colleague,” Ramos told Antena 3.

Madrid are preparing for a big few weeks, including a Copa del Rey semi-final and LaLiga clash against Barcelona and Atletico Madrid.
