Sergio Ramos Slams Pique Over Referee Comments

Zinedine Zidane’s side moved back to the highest point of La Liga by uprightness of their boss no holds barred record on Wednesday with a 2-0 win over Real Mallorca, on account of objectives from Ramos and Vinicius Junior.

Madrid recovered top spot after La Liga’s arrival this month because of Barcelona’s 0-0 draw with Sevilla last Friday, after which Pique recommended it is difficult to stop Los Blancos winning the title since VAR and ref choices time and again go their direction.

Ramos, however, thinks such contentions are just being made since Madrid have the edge in the title race.

“There’s a lot of noise in the media because we’re leaders again,” he told Movistar. “They didn’t talk so much before. They talk about VAR, but I don’t think anyone has an advantage over the season.

“We don’t pay attention to this noise. I don’t think they [the referees] take any predetermined decisions. It seems like we should be thanking the refs for being leaders! People shouldn’t be imagining things.

“We’ve been working hard and since the lockdown, we’ve been united, and we deserve to be where we are.” he said.
