    Real Madrid revealed that Sergio Ramos, the club's captain since 2005, is set to deliver a press conference on Thursday in which he will formally leave the team - an announcement that stunned many football fans around the world.

    The name of Spanish professional footballer, and soon-to-be ex-captain of Real Madrid, Sergio Ramos, made it to Twitter trends after it was announced that he would quit the team on Thursday, after 16 years at the helm.

    Netizens immediately flocked to the threads to let it all out: some expressed disappointment in how Real Madrid treats its "legends", while some simply thanked Ramos for his tenure in the club.

    Others were left guessing which club Ramos might choose after departing from Los Blancos.

    ​Some rushed screenshot Ramos' Twitter profile, with the description still says that he is Real Madrid's captain.

    ​Users compared how different captains of Los Blancos have left the club, saying that "something has to change".

    ​Some netizens speculated on reasons Ramos would leave the club, since neither Real Madrid, nor the iconic Spanish defender himself have clarified why he would quit the team.

    ​On Thursday, Ramos is scheduled to appear before the media at a press conference to formally announce his departure.
