Sergio Ramos favoured to take penalties ahead of Messi, Neymar, Mbappe.. Former Real Madrid captain, Sergio Ramos has been tipped to take over penalty duties at Paris Saint-Germain, according to Marca.
The Spaniard will take the responsibility despite the addition of Lionel Messi to the star-studded Mauricio Pochettino’s side.
Messi became the latest star addition at PSG, joining up with a squad already parading the likes of Ramos, Neymar and Kylian Mbappe all super penalty takers.
However, their recent records on spot kicks show that Ramos is ahead of them all, according to the newspaper.
A glance at the statistics shows why the best option for this role might in fact be Ramos who was in charge of the role while in Real Madrid.
The former Real Madrid captain has a flawless record from the spot kick, and has scored in each of his last 10 penalties, making him the best among Messi, Mbappe and Neymar.
While Neymar and Mbappe have both scored nine times from their last 10 respective penalties, Messi has managed only eight out of 10.
