Real Madrid and Spain captain, Sergio Ramos has revealed he received death threats and insults after the Champions League final against Liverpool.
The defender became a villain in the eyes of the English fans after Mohamed Salah had to leave the pitch injured after a shoulder tackle with him.
Sergio Ramos’ Spain won 2-1 against England in the UEFA Nations League.
After winning their first UEFA Nations League game against England at Wembley, Ramos revealed in the press conference what he went through in the last few months.
The Real Madrid defender got accused of deliberately injuring both players Salah and Loris Karius. And Liverpool fans including the manager, Jurgen Klopp often blamed Ramos for the loss. And Ramos consistently received boos in the last few months including in the match against England at Wembley. However, it doesn’t affect the UEFA Best defender of the year.
“One tries to evade [the boos]. In the end, you feel it, but I stay out of everything. It doesn’t affect my game. I would have liked another reception because people only remember the action of the final. And nobody remembers the death threats that my family and my children received.”
“It is a very sensitive issue that people maybe take as a joke about and [that’s why they] whistle in a great stadium like this. My conscience is very clear. I already explained [what happened], and I do not have to give more explanations.”
Ramos also made it clear once again that the tackle on Salah wasn’t intentional and never tries to hurt a colleague.
“As I said before, I have never tried to hurt a colleague. There are people who may have misunderstood it, but these are football things. It will not change anything in my game or in me.”
