Reports emanating from Spain susggest that there was a clash of words between Real Madrid’s president and the club’s captain following the humiliation handed to them by Ajax Amsterdam.
Real Madrid were thrashed 4-1 on Tuesday at the Santiago Bernabeu by Ajax, in a game which Sergio Ramos was suspended for — resulting in them getting eliminated from UEFA Champions League at the round of 16.
AS said that the President blamed the players in the club for what had befallen them, thereby admonishing them for poor displays on the pitch.
But Sergio Ramos defended his peers by reminding the president about how they had requested for a new striker during the transfer window but got none.
He told the players that they were to blame for what was happening, but Ramos – who didn’t play the second leg as he was suspended – told the president that they’d warned him during the summer of the need to sign a striker.
He insisted that the blame shouldn’t be pushed to the players alone.
Sergio Ramos’ stance certainly didn’t sit well with Florentino Perez as the two exchanged words back and forth.
Marca reported that the Club captain was threatened to be ostracized by the President during the arguement and Ramos said he’ll leave feeling proud of what he has achieved at the club and after his remaining contract must’ve been paid off, in retort.
Real Madrid have had their season tumbled upside down all in one week and this piece of news certainly will be doing the club more harm than good.
What is certainly expected is the fact that heads will roll at the end of the season following how things have unfolded at the Spanish capital.
