Ramos reveals who caused Real Madrid’s 2-0 defeat to Real Sociedad

Published

Real Madrid captain, Sergio Ramos has blamed referee Jose Munuera following his side’s 2-0 defeat by Real Sociedad at home in the La Liga encounter on Sunday.

Goals from Willian Jose and Ruben Pardo ensured Sociedad defeated the Champions League holders at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Ramos blamed Munuera for his officiating during the match, labelling his performance “scandalous”.

“The referee played a big role in things. I’ve always defended the VAR system, but it has to be improved because what we’ve seen was scandalous,” Ramos was quoted by All Football as saying at post-match.

“He could have awarded the penalty and then consulted the VAR. After seeing the penalty incidents in the dressing room, all we ask for is fairness. There are times when we’re punished for our behaviour on the pitch and the referees’ committee should do the same with the officials. The VAR is in place but you’ve got to know how to use it and consult it.

“We’re motivated and fighting for a La Liga title that’ll be tough and it’s made all the more difficult when things like this happen. When you’re out there on the pitch it’s so much more difficult because your heart is racing. As the team captain, I always try and

“Lucas Vazquez’s sending-off was very harsh. Never before have I seen a player shown a second yellow for something like that, where you’re in the middle of the pitch with three Real Madrid players around you.”

Stressing that “it upsets all of our plans,” Ramos added, “We would have liked to have got the year off to a good start, but it’s not turned out that way. We’re going through a bad spell. The team performed well in spells but we lacked that cutting edge and luck in front of goal and had we had it, we’d be reflecting on a different result right now.

“We’ve been through a lot of tough times and this is another such spell. We’ve got to look at ourselves. It’s all about performing as best we can and being clinical, particularly because football is all about the results.

“You go through periods in football where everything goes for you and right now nothing is going our way. Sometimes the woodwork gets in the way and at others you’re not creating the chances… We can’t blame the referee for the result, although he had a defining role, but we’ve also got to look at ourselves.

“We’re going to keeping battling, but it’s difficult because Barcelona don’t usually slip up and the gap is opening up. We’re going to stick together and fight until the end. Real Madrid won’t lie down, even if we’re kicked seven times.”

Real Madrid are now ten points behind league leaders, Barcelona on the La Liga table.

If you want to win trophies, Leave Tottenham, Ibrahimovic tells Harry Kane

Former Manchester United striker, Zlatan Ibrahimovic has told Tottenham Hotspur star, Harry Kane to leave Spurs, which according to him is a normal club, if he want to win trophies.

Kane, who is currently sidelined due to injury, is expected to return to training in March.

The 25-year-old injured his ankle ligaments at the end of Tottenham’s 1-0 defeat to Manchester United in a Premier League encounter last week after a collision with Phil Jones and Victor Lindelof.

Ibrahimovic, who has represented the likes of Paris Saint-Germain, Barcelona and Inter Milan, believes the time has come for Kane to leave Tottenham in pursuit of silverware.

“When I was in England, I saw him [Kane] play, I think he is a good striker,” the La Galaxy striker told Bethard.

“He’s still developing, he’s doing good things. But I always say, playing in a big club, performing good is different from playing in – with all due respect to Tottenham – a ‘normal’ club.

“Performing there is a different situation, because I saw players do the same thing, but when they go to a big club something is different.

“I think he can make it. He just needs to make the move and people will remember you for what you win and. In the end, he needs to win.

“If he wants to win, I think he needs to change. I think Tottenham has a great team but they’re not at the level to win everything, even if they’ve got a fantastic coach.”
