Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos has mocked Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp amid an ongoing war of words dating back to May’s Champions League final.
The German boss called the defender ‘brutal’ and blamed him for an injury to attacking star Mohamed Salah, which Ramos has repeatedly denied, with the latest comments coming on Tuesday.
“I have given my opinion on the matter: I have no intention of hurting a player deliberately,” Ramos told reporters ahead of Wednesday’s Super Cup final in Tallinn.
“Some of us have been operating at a very high level for many years – I'm not sure he can say the same. Let Klopp worry about his own players.
“He will be wanting to explain not winning the final, but it's not the first that he has lost.
“When we voted on the best managers I voted for him, so he can relax.”
