MADRID: Spain captain Sergio Ramos has been left out of the squad for Euro 2020, coach Luis Enrique said on Monday.
The Real Madrid centre-back won the last of his 180 caps in March but has endured an injury-plagued season that has limited him to just 15 La Liga appearances and only five games in all competitions in 2021 -- the last of which came in the club's 2-0 Champions League semi-final second leg defeat by Chelsea on May 5.
Manchester City's Aymeric Laporte was included after FIFA approved his switch from France to Spain earlier this month.
"I've not included Ramos because he's not been able to play much this season, especially since January he's not been fit enough, and at times not even training with the group at his club," Enrique, who named 24 players in the 26 spots available, told a news conference.
Ramos's team mate Dani Carvajal also missed out through injury, meaning there are no Real players amongst the squad, while there were just three Barcelona players and two from La Liga champions Atletico Madrid. Agencies
