Apart from football, music is Sergio Ramos' big passion. The Real Madrid defender explains his love for all styles and genres of music and why it has such a special place in his life.

“For me music is part of my life. When I leave home and head to the training ground, I stick my mobile phone on and I can listen to practically whatever I want. You put your music on and it makes you feel great, it lifts you. There’s always music in the changing room, on the way home I have my music on and on the way to matches, music is a way for me to concentrate. Music’s about the way you feel, the experiences you have been through, your life. There’s always a song for certain moments in your life, and that’s a source of motivation for me.

“I like practically every style of music, not so much rock but I’m known for my love of flamenco and I’ve been playing it since I was little. Little by little I started playing the guitar and at home I’ve got lyrics which I have written... sincerely, when I sit down to write a song, it gives me a great feeling and I’ve got one or two really nice ones. It helps me disconnect from everything. Sometimes, when I’m in the shower, I start singing my head off. Lyrics just come to me and I think, ‘Blimey, what a lovely tune!’. For me, music’s a big part of my life and I take it into my professional life and share it with my team mates, and enjoy it”.
