Ramos was a key player during the Italian coach’s first spell at Real Madrid from 2013 to 2015, scoring one of the most famous goals in the club’s history – the equalizer in the 93rd minute in the 2014 Champions League final victory over Atletico Madrid.
He joined boyhood club Sevilla last month as a free agent after leaving Paris Saint-Germain.
Ancelotti said before the day Real met Sevilla: “I really want to meet Ramos and say hello. I have feelings for all the players I have worked with, but above all I have special feelings for him.”
“If I’m still here today it’s thanks to Sergio Ramos. If he hadn’t scored in the final, maybe I wouldn’t be here. Because of that and because of everything he has done for this club, people have a lot of love for him. Let’s hope he doesn’t score but if he does he can celebrate however he wants!”
Ancelotti returned to coach RealMadrid in 2021, winning the La Liga and Champions League double in his first season back.
