Ramos: Real Madrid targeting the treble

Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos says the Spanish giants are aiming to build on their Club World Cup success by claiming the La Liga, Copa del Rey and Champions League titles this season.

Los Blancos claimed their second Club World Cup title in December, after recording a 4-2 victory over Japanese outfit Kashima Antlers after extra-time.

Unlike their bitter rivals Barcelona, though, the capital club have never won the treble, but Ramos is confident they can change that record this term.

"As always we aspire to win the three competitions; the league, Champions League and the Copa del Rey, along with other titles that may come our way," the 30-year-old told the club's official website. 

"From that base, we will try to play good football and give everything for the badge.

"Then everything will be easier when it comes to achieving success."

Real head coach Zinedine Zidane, meanwhile, echoed the sentiments of Ramos, saying: "We're going to try to win everything that we have in front of us.

"All the games are important and in the end we want to bring joy to the players, but also to all the people who support the team."

The Spanish club return to action on Wednesday night when they lock horns with Sevilla in a Copa del Rey clash at the Bernabeu – the return leg will take place on 11 January.
