Sergio Ramos brushes aside news of friction with teammate Juanfran
The Real Madrid and Spanish defender Sergio Ramos has played down the notion of friction between him and Atletico Madrid’s player Juanfran which resulted from the argument during the champions league final few days back.
“I have small argument’s every day in training and with my wife at home,” he said of the issue according to Marca.
“At the end of the match we spoke and there aren’t any problems – I’ll hug him just as I will all my teammates.”
Ramos added that the past few days have been incredible as a Real Madrid player as the Los Blancos lifted the UEFA Champions League trophy but now it’s time to focus on national duty with Spain in the upcoming Euro 2016.
“It’s been an unforgettable week for all Madrid fans but now we have to change track and think about the national side,” he remarked.
“I’m really looking forward to starting well, to prepare in the few days that remain and to have a good tournament in our defence of it.”
Although the Spanish side failed miserably during the FIFA World Cup but the defender is hopeful that they can put that behind and put up a good show in the Euro 2016.
“I’ve had great luck in living through one of the greatest moments in our national team’s history and now we’re keen to keep writing history,” he declared.
“Throughout the years maybe we’ve become accustomed to winning but you can also lose – there are some great teams and if you do lose, you must do so with humility.
“When you lose or go through a bad spell you have to use that to learn, such is the case for the past World Cup.”
Spain will be playing the first match of the UEFA Euro 2016 on the 13th of June against Czech Republic followed by Turkey on the 18th of June and their final group stage match will be against Croatia on the 22nd of June.
