Brazil international and Jiangsu Suning midfielder Ramires is ready and eager to feature for his country again.
The former Chelsea midfielder has not been called up to the Selecao in over a year, but believes he is ready.
Ramires has discussed a return to the Brazil setup with new coach, Tite, but understands he has to work for it.
“There are players who play in China being called, Gil, Renato Augusto and Paulinho, for example, and I’ll continue to work here. It’s always a pleasure to defend the selection.”
Ramires joined the Chinese Super League side in January, making him the most expensive player in the division at the time, and continues to be excited by his role at the club.
“In my case, it was advantageous for both sides. To me, it was presented as a project of which I am an important piece, while there was an improvement in financial terms.
“I’m very happy here. I was very well received since the first day I arrived in China, the country is very organized, Jiangsu too.”
