Paris Saint-Germain and Spain midfielder Ander Herrera has heaped praise on compatriot Sergio Ramos, who recently joined him at the Ligue One side on a free transfer.

Ramos, who left Real Madrid at the end of his contract this summer, has penned a two-year contract with PSG, and he is expected to bolster the French behemoths' defence.

The 35-year-old is widely regarded as one of the best defenders in the world, and Herrera, who has been at PSG since 2019, showered praise on Ramos, stating the former Real Madrid captain is perhaps the best defender in the history of Spain.

Herrera also described PSG's signing of Ramos as 'fantastic'. "Sergio is perhaps the best defender in the history of our country. A football legend, a natural leader, a person with charisma, energy and brutal hunger," Herrera told Goal.

"I see that he is a fantastic signing, because he is not going to allow anyone to relax. He doesn't, so the others aren't going to do it.

"Being able to share a dressing room with a guy like Sergio is a fantastic opportunity for me too, to be able to learn from him every day, to be able to enjoy having him."
