Sergio Ramos Fires Back At Klopp As Champions League Row Continues

Sergio Ramos has taunted Jurgen Klopp over his record in finals as their war of words about the incident in the Champions League final continues. 

The Real Madrid captain was embroiled in controversy in the final in May after his tackle on Mo Salah left the Egyptian international injured.

It was also revealed that the 32-year-old had an altercation with goalkeeper, Loris Karius who later was deemed to have suffered a concussion during the game.

Speaking earlier this week, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp said that the Ramous/Salah incident contributed heavily to their subsequent loss and also referred to his actions as “ruthless and brutal” earlier this summer.


Ramos spoke to the media ahead of Real’s UEFA Super Cup match against Atletico Madrid in Tallinn on Wednesday and when asked about Klopp’s comments, the Real captain suggested that he was looking to blame someone else for their loss.

“He will be wanting to explain not winning the final, but it’s not the first that he has lost.

“Some of us have been operating at a very high level for many years – not sure he can say the same. Let Klopp worry about his own players.”
