A few hours after the Classic Real Madrid vs Barcelona, and about to premiere the documentary ‘The legend of Sergio Ramos’, a preview of the chapters where the captain of the merengue team talks about the rivalry with Lionel Messi was released.
“We have suffered Messi during this time that, perhaps, if Barcelona had not had him and we had not had him in front of us, I think we would have won more titles,” said Ramos in the aforementioned documentary.
The defender recalled Pep Guardiola’s matches against Barcelona in which the Barça team maintained a hegemony over Madrid.
He considered it to be the “best Barcelona in history. We had a great coach like (Jose) Mourinho, but it was hard for us to face them. We did not win much and also because there was a tension generated by them or by us, “he said.
Ramos stressed that because both teams had important players in the Spanish national team, it was difficult to deal with the rivalry when they concentrated.
“I think we all made mistakes there and thank goodness that it took us at a more mature age. We solve it and fight for a unique team ”, which would ultimately be the champion of the Euro and the World Cup.
This Saturday they face Real Madrid and Barcelona at the Santiago Bernabéu Stadium, in a key duel for the League, because while the Catalans are second to one point behind Atlético de Madrid, the meringues are three in third position.
Sergio Ramos will not play due to an injury that has him inactive.
