Sergio Ramos has responded to being booed by home fans in ’s trip to Wembley which were caused by the Spaniards foul on Salah in the Champions League final.

After the infamous moment in the 2018 Champions League final in which Sergio Ramos injured Mohamed Salah’s shoulder, the Real Madrid legend has received a lot of backlash for his typically aggressive style of defending.

That criticism came to a head last night when England fans booed Ramos every time he touched the ball in support of Salah who has become one of the star names of English football in the last year.

Ramos has responded to the booing, saying “I try to escape them but it does not influence my game. Of course I would have liked another reception, because everyone remembers a single moment action in the final, but not the death threats that my family has received.”

Former England international Gary Neville has also weighed on the situation, adding “For all the booing there isn’t a fan in the stadium that wouldn’t like him to play for their club. He’s the best – personality, character. You talk about a lack of leaders. He’s a huge presence on a football pitch.”
