The former Real Madrid defender spoke about having Messi as a teammate now

Paris Saint-Germain defender Sergio Ramos said it's a "joy" to play alongside Lionel Messi after the former Real Madrid and Barcelona players joined up in France last summer.

"For me, he's always been one of the best in the world, if not the best, and to have him in our squad I think gives the team more value and more importance," Ramos told Amazon Prime Video.

On his move to Paris, he added: "I have always had a really good relationship with players that were already here. That's the case with Keylor Navas, who is practically a brother; with Neymar, who I have had a relationship with for many years; and with Fideo [Angel di Maria], who was also at Madrid.

"With Kylian [Mbappe] and the other players, whenever we have played there's always been a lot of respect. It's a team of stars, which is always a joy."

Ramos, 35, finally made his long-awaited debut for PSG on Sunday as they beat Saint Etienne 3-1 in Ligue 1, with Messi setting up all three goals. Marquinhos scored two and Di Maria got one.
