There have been some rumblings of tension within Real Madrid with Sergio Ramos. That has brought about questions around Ramos future with the club, especially after getting a red card in their win over Galatasaray in Champions League.
“I have no problem with Sergio Ramos and he has no problem with me,” Ancelotti said in AS. “I just said he needed to cover his back, it was a tactical chat. It was a mistake, but it does not change anything. To make mistakes on the pitch is normal, everyone knows that. He is fine and will play tomorrow. He will do well.”
“[Ramos] is one of the best central defenders in the world,” he said. “We have Pepe and Ramos, with lots of experience. And [Raphael] Varane and Nacho, who are very young and need older players to help them improve.”
Ancelotti says he hasn’t seen any issues between Ramos and club president Florentino Perez either.
“I talk a lot with the president and we have never spoken about this,” Ancelotti said. “Everyone knows how important Ramos is, with his technical ability, his personality and for the history of this club. I do not know about their relationship, [but] the president gets on very well with all the players.”
