The name Sergio Ramos is synonymous with terms such as leader, captain, Madridismo and unfortunately red card.
During his tenure with Real Madrid, the Spaniard seemed to have a penchant for getting disciplinary cautions as he earned 171 yellow cards and 20 red cards.
Being a fierce competitor, Ramos’s passion tends to go off the rails, and one can find multiple complications showcasing some of the Spaniard’s rather violent challenges.
And a change of clubs certainly hasn’t deterred Ramos’s tendency to be expelled from the field, as the 35-year-old got sent off last night for the 27th time in his career.
The former Real Madrid man came on at halftime during PSG’s league game against FC Lorient. He received a booking in the 81st minute for a needless tussle near the corner flag and subsequently got his marching orders after a cynical challenge on Terem Moffi.
The foul itself was classic Ramos, he intentionally got in Moffi’s path who clattered against Ramos’s back, extinguishing any goal threat.
Despite being a red card raider, Ramos usually is a master at getting away with mischievous antics, unfortunately for him, there was no fooling the referee this time around.
20 – Sergio Ramos has received his 20th red card in the Top 5 European Leagues since his first season in 2003/04, at least seven more than any other player over the period. Recidivist. #FCLPSG pic.twitter.com/PuIphURXqK— OptaJean (@OptaJean) December 22, 2021
It took just 130 minutes of league action for Ramos to get sent off, this led to some hilarious fan reactions on Twitter.
One fan even called it ‘Football Heritage’, while we’re not sure whether this is something Ramos would like to be associated with, the manner in which he was sent off is trademark Sergio Ramos.

Ironically enough, most reactions celebrated the red card, as it apparently indicated a return to embracing the dark arts for Ramos.
