Revelation Comes After Spain Victory Over England
Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos has revealed that he received death threats following May’s Champions League Final win over Liverpool.
Ramos was involved in an incident with Reds striker Mo Salah in the first half of Madrid’s 3-1 victory over Liverpool to give his side a third consecutive Champions League triumph. However, he was booed by England fans during Saturday’s Nations League clash between Spain and England at Wembley.
Afterwards, Ramos spoke about the barracking and said he received death threats in the aftermath of the incident with Salah.
“One tries to evade them,” he told reporters. “In the end you feel it, but I stay out of everything. It doesn’t affect my game.
“I would have liked another reception because people only remember the action of the final, and nobody remembers the death threats that my family and my children received.
“It is a very sensitive issue that people maybe take as a joke about and [they] whistle in a great stadium like this. My conscience is very clear. I already explained [what happened], and I do not have to give more explanations.”
Spain won 2-1 in what was the opening encounter in the Nations League for both sides.
