Derby boss Clement: Sergio Ramos is one of the best centre-halves in the world and I’ve worked with some good ones like John Terry and Thiago Silva.


Former Real Madrid assistant coach Paul Clement has heaped praise on Sergio Ramos, saying he is one of the best players he has ever worked with.

The Derby boss worked with the Spanish defender - who has been linked with a move to Old Trafford - for two campaigns at Los Blancos and Clement is convinced Ramos is one of the best defenders in football.

He told Sky Sports: "He is a wonderful player, one of the best I have ever worked with.

"So many qualities, a fantastic footballer, leader, competitor, athlete, a fantastic guy.

"He is one of the best centre-halves in the world and I've worked with some good ones like John Terry, Thiago Silva at PSG, good ones in Pepe and Raphael Varane but Ramos is up there with the best I've worked with.”

The former Chelsea and PSG assistant added: "Whether at Real Madrid or United, either club are going to massively benefit.

"Wherever he is, it's going to a massive plus for that club."
