Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos has offered UFC star Conor McGregor a training session with the La Liga champions.

Ramos and McGregor have regularly been conversing on social media in recent weeks after the Real defender performed McGregor’s strut in training.

Now the UFC ace has shown off his footballing skills, kicking a ball about in a garden and scoring a couple of wonder goals.

He shared the clips on Instagram with the caption: “What do you think Sergio Ramos?”

To which the Spaniard responded: “Top class mate! Fancy a training session at Real Madrid? More than welcome to join us anytime.”

Before he was a star in the Octagon, McGregor regularly turned out for Slieveamon United and Yellowstone Celtic in the United Churches League and Leinster Football League.

“He played for me with a club called Slievenamon United when we played in the UCFL. He was a striker and was our top scorer every year,” former manager Robbie Beakhurst said.

“I took over Yellowstone Celtic and took him with me and again he was scoring for fun on a weekly basis.

“He used to just say to the rest of team ‘just give me the ball and I’ll do the rest’ – he was a smashing player but we had a decent team.

“As he got more involved in the MMA he couldn’t make matches and we allowed him to skip training.”

While Kilmarnock midfielder Alan Power previously said: “Conor is huge in Ireland, especially in Dublin. He’s someone I admire greatly, what he has achieved, it’s remarkable.

“We used to knock around in the same circle of friends back home when we were growing up.

“He played Sunday League football where I did, actually he wasn’t a bad footballer, but he chose a different path.”
