Sergio Ramos believes that Real Madrid left the Camp Nou with their heads held high after Sunday’s Clasico defeat to Barcelona.
Speaking to El Larguero, the Spain international also responded to critics of Carlo Ancelotti’s team and told of what it was like in the Madrid dressing room afterwards.
“We departed the Camp Nou with our heads held high after giving everything and getting nothing,” commented Ramos.
“It was very much a game where we wore each other down, but we had a lot of the ball and created chances to have killed the game. Small details make the difference in the end. Barca took their chances and won the match.
“In the dressing room afterwards it was silent because you’ve left everything out there on the pitch and it was a blow to lose against Barcelona.
“But when it is over is not the right time to talk as things are still heated. Everyone has a different opinion. When things go badly some people may make comments that are out of place.
“It’s impossible to agree with everyone. In general there are criticisms you share and some you don’t.
“We are public people and sometimes we don’t get the respect we deserve,” he added.
