It was a dream come true to play against Sergio Ramos – Alidu Seidu

Published on: 04 December 2023

Ghana defender Alidu Seidu says it is a dream come true to play against his role model Sergio Ramos earlier this year.

Seidu started for Clermont Foot while Ramos also started for PSG when the two teams met in June this year toward the end of the season, with Clermont winning 3-2.

The 23-year-old said he liked the fighting spirit of the veteran defender and was inspired by his style of play, taking him as an inspiration.

Alidu himself has been criticized for his hard style of football, and is currently serving a red card suspension after being sent off in Clermont Foot’s game against Lens two weeks ago.

He disclosed it was a dream come true to play the former Real Madrid captain in the Ligue 1.

“When I was little, I really liked Sergio Ramos. He's a player who goes into duels, fights, and is always there,” he told Ligue 1 in an interview.

“In good times, he's there, in difficult times, he's there. He always gives his all. It's true, he gets a lot of red cards, but he's a player who never gives up.

“When I had the chance to play against him in Ligue 1 Uber Eats, it was a dream come true!”
