Inter forward Ivan Perisic said Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos is one of the ‘most impressive’ defenders he has played against.

The Nerazzurri winger returned as European champion after winning the Treble with Bayern Münich, and has previous stints with FC Sochaux in France, Club Brugge in Belgium, VfL Wolfsburg and Borussia Dortmund in Germany.

He said he has faced a host of great defenders, but mentioned the Spain international as one of the most impressive.

“In my career, I have played against many strong defenders,” he said in the matchday programme ahead of Inter-Benevento. “Among those who have impressed me the most is Sergio Ramos.”

When the Croatian picked a five-a-side team of Inter players, he didn’t find space for any of today’s teammates.

“Julio Cesar in goal, he made history with Inter,” he added. “[Walter] Samuel, because he’s one of those players you need to win.

“[Samuel] Eto’o, sacrifice and talent: he is a champion. [Dejan] Stankovic is a complete player who has scored incredible goals.

Ronaldo, one of the strongest of all time."
