Malaga striker Sandro Ramirez is one of the players Barcelona's title hopes rest on at La Rosaleda on Sunday when Real Madrid visit in the final game of the season.

The former Barça frontman has told Gol that his intention is to help his old players and score against Keylor Navas: "I hope I can score a goal and give the league to Barça." 

With 16 goals, he's Malaga's top scorer and he's not hiding his intentions for this weekend: "It was really emotional, above all for my parents, when Barcelona came for me after seven years with Las Palmas. 

"I had the chance to go to Madrid, but I like Barça more, because I was always a Barça fan. So was my dad. At the time the academy counted for a lot." 


Sandro struggled to break into the first team at Barça as he was competing with the best players in the world in his position. That stopped him getting regular football under Luis Enrique. 

"The last year was the worst. But you know that you have the best in the world ahead of you, so I don't regret anything." 

He has already scored against a big side this season -- netting against his former employers when Malaga beat Barça earlier this season.

"The goal I scored against Barça allowed me to revindicate myself," he said. "I didn't celebrate the goal as I should have done against the best team in the world due to my past, but now I owe Malaga and I will give everything until the last day." 


Sandro now dreams of being the hero of all Barcelona fans against Madrid: "I hope it will be a dream day. I owe everything to Barcelona. If I score and I give them the league... I hope I give it to them." 

Malaga manager Michel has placed a lot of faith in Sandro: "From day one he told me I was a key player for him and that's what a player needs. Confidence is key in football. I'm ambitous and I know I can give a lot more. 

"We are in good form and my desire now is to end the season in the best way possible."
