Ramos liked an Instagram post which panned Madrid’s display at Barcelona but said he and Marcelo were “the only ones that did something”.
Real Madrid’s 5-1 thrashing by Barcelona on Sunday, which saw head coach Julen Lopetegui sacked the following day, led many of the club’s fans to vent their frustration on social media. For example, the Instagram user @sergio_ramos_idol took to the platform to pan the team’s display, reserving particularly stiff critcism for goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois and defenders Nacho Fernández and Raphael Varane.
That in itself is not particularly remarkable; however, what does make this post stand out from the thousands published by unhappy Madridistas is that it earned a ‘like’ from none other than club captain Sergio Ramos. Written in English, the message offers the opinion that, though they were also guilty of mistakes, Ramos and defensive colleague Marcelo were “the only ones who did something” at the Camp Nou.
