Ramos takes the blame for Real ban

Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos says he “won’t hide” as he addressed the intentional suspension he inflicted in the UEFA Champions League first-leg fixture against Ajax before the eventual last-16 rout.

Ramos was charged by UEFA for receiving a yellow card on purpose during the last-16 match against Ajax in order to serve a suspension before the quarter-finals.

Real were leading the tie 2-1 at the time but were stunned in the return leg at the Bernabeu as they lost 4-1 and crashed out of the competition.

Now in a series of tweets via his official Twitter account, the veteran defender has opened up about the controversial ordeal that saw him endure plenty of criticism within the aftermath of the 13-time European champions exit.

“As footballers we like to do our talking on the pitch but this season is not turning out that way,” Ramos wrote.

“Recent events have been disastrous and I’m not hiding. We are not hiding. We the players are primarily responsible and I, as captain, more than anyone.

He added; “That’s why I thought that the most honest way to answer the questions that are circulating around us would be to tackle them directly.

“Was the yellow card in Amsterdam an error? Absolutely it was an error and I take the blame 200%.”
