Sergio Ramos

Real Madrid captain, Sergio Ramos, has expressed his delight at replacing Cristiano Ronaldo as the team's penalty taker.

Ramos took over spot-kick duties for Madrid, after Ronaldo left the LaLiga giants for Juventus last summer.

The defender has already scored 10 goals this season, to equal his most in a campaign.

"I've taken on the role after Cristiano's departure and I'm delighted to do so.

"It [the 'Panenka'] is a way to take them, but I never want to offend a colleague,"
Ramos told Antena 3.

Madrid are preparing for a big few weeks, including a Copa del Rey semi-final and LaLiga clash against Barcelona and Atletico Madrid.
