Together, they have shared everything up to this point and continue to inspire one another. The PSG superstar chats to his sister whenever he is feeling depressed.

Joe Hart

On his right shoulder, Joe Hart has a tattoo that looks like armor. The English goalie has a reputation for being aggressive on the field. He has frequently confronted strikers one-on-one as a goalkeeper, which has occasionally resulted in a collision.

Six qualities are represented by the six stars: love, knowledge, wisdom, life, understanding, and loyalty. This particular tattoo was created by Ramos in memory of his grandmother Nena, who gave the mother of the Spanish artist a pendant with the same design.
