- Sergio Ramos’ mocking comments after Champions League final have not gone down well with Roberto Firmino
- Firmino has called out Ramos and branded him an “idiot” for his mocking tone
Liverpool striker Roberto Firmino has branded Sergio Ramos an “idiot” after the Real Madrid skipper continued to revel in and chatter about his side’s 3-1 win over Jurgen Klopp’s men in the Champions League final last month. The final in Kiev was marred by a couple of incidents of injuries to Liverpool players which were inflicted by Ramos and major headlines in Liverpool News circles.
Ramos emerged as the quintessential villain after the final as his entangling challenge on Mohamed Salah forced the Egyptian star to go off in the first half after a serious shoulder injury. In what emerged as Liverpool latest news, that challenge resulted in an online petition for UEFA and FIFA to take action against the Spanish international defender and even garnered 500,000 signatures from all across the world.
Subsequently, Ramos has also been accused of deliberately elbowing Loris Karius shortly before the first of his two game-changing mistakes – an incident that is believed to have caused the Liverpool goalkeeper to suffer concussion. Another revelation which has been trending in Liverpool news circles in the last week or so.
Reacting to the above-mentioned accusations, Ramos said: “I am only missing Roberto Firmino saying he got a cold because a drop of my sweat landed on him.” This mocking tone has clearly not gone down well with Liverpool’s No. 9, Roberto Firmino.
Ramos is an idiot: Firmino
“I prefer not to make any comments,” he said in a news conference at Brazil’s pre-World Cup training camp in London ahead of their friendly fixture against Austria.
“I think he has a view because he was the champion but I thought he was an idiot for what he said, but that’s okay.”
Karius horrendous goalkeeping show in the final last month has also prompted calls of Liverpool going all out to sign a world class shot-stopper as the position has been an area of concern for quite some time now. Atletico Madrid’s Jan Oblak and AS Roma‘s Alisson Becker, who also happens to Firmino’s teammate in the Brazilian national team, have both been linked with moves to Anfield in recent days.
Commenting on Alisson to Anfield Liverpool Transfer News, Firmino said: “Sometimes I talk to him about it and have a joke with him, saying ‘you should come to Liverpool’.”
“His agent is sorting his future but it wouldn’t be a bad thing to have him here at Liverpool.”
