Sergio Ramos FINALLY makes his PSG debut 143 days after signing for the French giants from Real Madrid – and after earning £4MILLION without even kicking a ball! – as he overcomes injury woes to start at last
- Sergio Ramos was finally given his Paris Saint-Germain debut against St Etienne
- Ramos had struggled with a calf problem since he joined the French club in July
- The centre-back was an unused substitute in the defeat to Manchester City
The experienced centre-back joined PSG on a free transfer in July after leaving Real Madrid but has been sidelined with a calf problem.
After being an unused substitute in the 2-1 defeat to Manchester City in the Champions League in midweek, Ramos was thrown into action by Mauricio Pochettino against Saint-Etienne.
Sergio Ramos finally made his debut for Paris Saint-Germain away to St Etienne on Sunday
Ramos earned around £3.9million before making his debut for PSG, with the Spaniard on a contract worth £10million a year, while he earns £191,779 per day.
It will be interesting to see what PSG’s first-choice defence will be going forward, with Marquinhos and Presnel Kimpembe having featured prominently so far this campaign. For the game against St Etienne Ramos started alongside Marquinhos, with Kimpembe on the bench.
35-year-old Ramos will be looking to add to his significant silverware collection during his time at PSG.

PSG manager Mauricio Pochettino will soon face a tough selection decision over his defenders
After starting out at Sevilla, he joined Real Madrid in 2005 and went on to win the Champions League on four occasions and LaLiga six times as well as the Copa del Rey twice.
On the international front, Ramos won the World Cup with Spain in 2010 and the European Championship in both 2008 and 2012.
Given the way in which they have commenced the season, it seems likely that PSG will win the Ligue 1 title this campaign – they started the game eleven points clear of their closest challengers Nice.
Ramos will be determined to prove that he is still capable of performing consistently at a high level, with PSG having progressed to the knockout stages of the Champions League.
