Speaking in his press conference ahead of Real Madrid’s match against Espanyol on Sunday, Zinedine Zidane admitted he believes there’s no other centre-back pairing like Sergio Ramos and Raphaël Varane in world football.

Ramos and Varane is the best centre-back pairing around. They’re exceptional and they only give us joy.”

Madrid have conceded just 21 league goals in 31 games this season.
