Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos has demanded respect after fans jeered him in Abu Dhabi during Real Madrid’s 4-1 win over Al-Ain in the Club World Cup Final on Saturday.
Madrid won the competition for the third time in a row, thanks to strikes from Luka Modric, Marcos Llorente, Ramos and a Yahia Nader own goal.
But all was not well for Ramos who was booed throughout the encounter as local fans sought to show solidarity with Egypt striker Mohamed Salah. The Egyptian was forced out of the Champions League final in May after clashing with Ramos, with the Liverpool man later admitting it was the “worst moment of my career”.
Ramos labelled the abuse as “inexplicable” saying: “I got that,” he told reporters when asked about the boos being directed at him.
“The whistles are inexplicable. I think you have to respect the figures of football.”
