Sergio Ramos has been left out of the Spain squad for Euro 2020 by Luis Enrique.
Spain's manager Luis Enrique has snubbed the Spanish captain from his Euro 2020 Spain squad for Euro 2020. Not only that but none of Real Madrid's Spanish players has been called by the former Barcelona coach.
What's more, Enrique has not called any Real Madrid players for the Euros, which is ironic given the fact that he played for the Los Blancos player for five seasons.

It has certainly raised eyebrows among fans and experts all over the globe. Ramos, who is also Real Madrid's captain, has struggled with muscle and knee injuries throughout the season and only played 21 games for Real.
Clarifying his decision to exclude the 35-year-old veteran, Enrique told that he had less playing time this season.
The Spaniard went on to say:
"It was a very difficult decision but he [Ramos] has not been able to play this season and has hardly trained since January. I called him yesterday [Sunday] - it was hard, difficult. I feel bad because he is very professional and he helps the national team a lot. And he can still help it in the future. But I have to look for the best for the squad."
In place for Ramos, the 51-year-old included France-born Manchester City center-back Aymeric Laporte. But Laporte became available for the selection after he switched his nationality from France to Spain.

Sergio is the most capped player in Spain's history, having played 180 matches for the 2010 world champion. Fans worldwide have criticized the Spanish coach for not including Ramos.
Furthermore, Enrique's selection of only 24 players out of the maximum 26-man squad for the tournament has also raised many questions among enthusiasts. It makes you want to think if the coach's player choice was made on nepotism. What do you think?
Luis Enrique picked only 24 out of the maximum 26 man squad for the Euro 2020.
Besides Ramos, other notable omitted players include Nacho Fernandez, Marco Asensio, Iago Aspas, and Inigo Martinez.
