Sergio Ramos picks up the award for Best Defender of the Champions League last season

The Spaniard was awarded the title of Best Defender of the tournament by UEFA after captaining his side to win their ‘Duodécima’.

Ramos was a key part of the Real Madrid defence as his side lifted the trophy at the Millennium Stadium in June, and became the first captain to lift the Champions League trophy in two consecutive years.

Unlike his two previous Champions League victories, the man from Seville did not have to rescue his team himself in the final, he had a much quieter night in Cardiff than in Lisbon or Milan.

The centre-back finished his campaign with 11 appearances, 10 of which he started in, scored one goal and grabbed 3 assists.

Ramos won this award ahead of team-mate Marcelo and rival in the final Leonardo Bonucci, now at Milan, who both had excellent European campaigns, but only one player could be named Best Defender and that accolade went to the Real Madrid captain.
