Sergio Ramos loses it in Real Madrid training

It appears the pressure on Real Madrid has made its way onto Los Blanco’s training ground.

Slumping to a 2-1 defeat against Levante on Saturday, Madrid have now lost four of their last five matches in all competitions.

On Tuesday, the defending Champions League winners will welcome Viktoria Plzen to the Bernabeu in a match that could decide Julen Lopetegui’s future.

To make matters worse, Madrid’s captain, Sergio Ramos, has once again come under heavy scrutiny for his attitude in Monday’s training session.

Following an accidental collision with academy product Sergio Reguilón, the Spanish international proceeded to fire the ball at the youngster on two occasions.

Ramos’ apology

A side that finds the pressure on them at an all-time high, this was the last thing Lopetegui would have wanted to come out of their training session.

Unsurprisingly, the 32-year-old was quick to publically apologize for his altercation with the 21-year-old.


For those who can not read Spanish, the Tweet read:

“Although it may not seem like it, they are quite common situations, but it is not an excuse, my reaction should not have been that.

“We always go full-on, right, Regui? In the end, team victory together.

“Done. On to tomorrow’s game.”

While Ramos may have been quick to play the incident down, many were left outraged by the actions of Madrid’s skipper.

Social media reaction

Hardly a fan favourite to anyone away from the Bernabeu, Ramos was quickly on the end of a Twitter backlash.
