Sergio Ramos slams Cristiano Ronaldo over Alvaro Morata claim

Sergio Ramos has branded Cristiano Ronaldo an ‘opportunist’ for suggesting Real Madrid’s current woes are down to the summer sales of Alvaro Morata, James Rodgriguez and Pepe.

Zinedine Zidane has come under significant pressure for the first time since he became the manager of the Spanish giants following a run of form which has seen his side fall eight points behind La Liga leaders Barcelona, while defeat at Wembley against Tottenham last week will almost certainly see the back-to-back European champions fail to qualify from Group H.

Ronaldo, who has scored only once in La Liga this season, believes Real’s problems can be traced back to a summer window which saw three high-profile squad members depart, but Ramos insists that is too simplistic an explanation.

‘I do not agree with Cristiano,’ he told Cadena SER. ‘I think it’s an opportunist opinion.

‘When we won two Super Cups [UEFA Super Cup and Supercopa de Espana], nobody missed anyone.

‘I would place more of the emphasis on injuries. The team is stronger when we’re all together.

‘I don’t miss anyone. No one.

‘The squad has changed, of course, but some contribute some things and others have another role.’
