Barcelona attacker Pedro Rodriguez has crossed the Clasico divide and praised Real Madrid centre-back Sergio Ramos.
The 25-year-old has claimed that his fellow Spanish international teammate is 'one of the best in the world', and also commented on his form this season for club and country.
“I think Sergio is one of the very best central defenders in the world,” he told reporters at a Nike Press conference.
“He is very strong, fast and really comfortable on the ball. He is certainly one of the best around.
“I'd like to score more goals this season [for Barcelona],” he added. “But I am happy just bringing things to the team.
“I am playing with confidence, and I'm happy to be getting a run in the national team.”
