Real Madrid and Germany midfielder Toni Kroos has named Sergio Ramos as the best captain he has ever had in his career.

Kroos has been Ramos' Real Madrid teammate since joining Los Blancos in 2014, but that could end this summer, with the Spanish defender's contract with the club expiring at the end of June,

Ramos and Real Madrid have not yet reached agreement over a new contract, but Kroos hopes the 35-year-old centre-back will stay at the La Liga outfit beyond this summer.

"I believe that we don't have to speak about the importance of Sergio [Ramos] for Real Madrid," Kroos said in a Germany press conference ahead of Euro 2020, as quoted by Marca. "I don't know how things are going with the club. I believe that he has 20 days of his contract left.

"I can only say that I have enjoyed these eight years a lot and I hope to have many more years with him."

Kroos has had several captains in his illustrious career, and the German considers Ramos as the best of the lot, further highlighting how immensely he values the Spanish international. He said: "He has always been a great teammate and a great captain, he has been the best captain that I have had in my career."
