Alba: No Clasico bad blood

Jordi Alba insists the Real Madrid and Barcelona players in the Spain squad get along fine, remaining rivals but fighting for the same cause.

Alba is one of a number of Barca representatives with La Roja at Euro 2016 while Sergio Ramos and Lucas Vazquez carry the banner for Los Blancos, along with ex-Madrid players Iker Casillas and Alvaro Morata.

“It’s a very good locker room. There’s always rivalry between Madrid and Barca but we’re all defending the same with the national team,” the left-back told a Press conference, AS reports.

“The new people have settled in perfectly and that is vital because we are spending a lot of time together. It’s definitely better as because aside from the football, we’re spending a lot of hours with each other.

“Ramos? He’s a very important player, not only on the pitch. He offers a lot off it. I have a great relationship with him. He’s very important and he’s the mirror in which we see ourselves.”
