Over the years, we have come across defenders with great prospects when it comes to scoring goals. Players like Brazilian David Luiz and England international John Terry have a good number of goals for both club and country. The article states reasons why Paris Saint-Germain defender Sergio Ramos should be regarded as a better goalscorer than other midfield maestros who have graced different European clubs in the past.
Based on stats, individual performance, and style of play, the former Spain national team and Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos should be put into consideration as a better goalscorer ahead of some star players who have graced the world of football.
Sergio Ramos who completed a move to Paris Saint-Germain in the summer transfer season has some bizarre records which some great midfield maestros find it had to achieve.
While playing for Spain's national team and Real Madrid, Sergio Ramos was able to score 97 goals without penalties. Whereas world-class midfielders like FC Barcelona's Sergio Busquets, Andres Iniesta, and Juventus legend Andrea Pirlo were not able to score such number goals.
Check out these players (Sergio Busquets, Andres Iniesta, and Juventus legend Andrea Pirlo) goal tally, including penalties.
Sergio Busquets (17 Goals)
Andrea Pirlo (86 Goals)
Andres Iniesta (89 Goals)
It is quite unbelievable, right? But that's the truth, Sergio Ramos should have been a striker and not a defender.
