            <strong>Madrid</strong>: L'entraîneur espagnol Luis Enrique a quitté lundi le défenseur vétéran Sergio Ramos de son équipe pour l'Euro 2020, mais a appelé le défenseur central Aymeric Laporte, qui a récemment changé de nationalité de football.

Ramos, the 35-year-old Real Madrid captain, has suffered an injury this season and has only played five times since the start of the year.

“It was a very difficult decision but he hasn’t been able to play this season and hasn’t trained much since January,” Luis Enrique said at the press conference announcing a 24-man squad.

“I called him yesterday (Sunday), it was hard, difficult. I feel bad because he is very professional and he helps the national team a lot. And he can still help her in the future. But I have to look for the best for the team, ”said the coach.

Ramos’ absence means there isn’t a single Madrid player in the Spanish squad.

Laporte, a 26-year-old Manchester City defender, was born in southwest France and has been called up three times for The Blues but has never been on the pitch.

While French coach Didier Deschamps has a plethora of center-backs to choose from, Luis Enrique has had fewer options since Gerard Pique retired in 2018.

Ramos was an automatic starter when in good shape with a number of players including Pau Torres of Villarreal, Inigo Martinez of Real Sociedad and Eric Garcia of Manchester City playing alongside him.

After an impressive start at City, Laporte injured his knee in 2019 and has not been a regular for Pep Guardiola this season.
