Luis Enrique on Sergio Ramos: “Sergio is unique, he is on a different level.”

Sergio Ramos equalled Gianluigi Buffon’s European caps record after making his 176th appearance for Spain against the Netherlands in Amsterdam on Wednesday night.

Head coach Luis Enrique spoke after the 1-1 draw about the national team captain and his special achievement.

“Sergio is unique. He is on a different level. The appearance record is only within the reach of those who are very gifted. He has a ceiling, unfortunately for me as a coach.

Ramos was brought on six minutes from the end at the Johan Cruyff Arena and the Real Madrid defender can overtake legendary keeper Buffon as Europe’s most-capped international footballer should he play against Switzerland on Saturday.
