Sergio Ramos has hinted he will stay at Real Madrid even if Jose Mourinho is reappointed insisting he will “always support” the club’s manager.
The Real Madrid captain had a famously frosty relationship with Mourinho when the Portuguese was in charge from 2010-13 and reports this weekend suggested the defender would seek a move away should Mourinho replace current boss Santiago Solari in the Spanish capital.
Addressing speculation over Solari’s future in a wide-ranging statement on Twitter on Monday, Ramos said: “It’s a decision that’s not ours to make and in which we never interfere.
“We have enormous respect for the position and we always support the Real Madrid coach.” Ramos also addressed his deliberate yellow card in the Champions League last 16 first leg tie against Ajax which saw him miss defeat in the second leg.
“Was the yellow card in Amsterdam an error? Absolutely it was an error and I take the blame 200 per cent,” Ramos said.
