Sergio Ramos: The Truth About My Relationship With Gerard Pique
Sergio Ramos and Gerard Pique regularly turn from club rivals into Spain teammates. With reports suggesting they have clashed in the past, the Real Madrid captain has now addressed his relationship with the FC Barcelona defender.
Pique has been very vocal about Catalonia’s independence recently, while Ramos' political views differ from his club rival. However, the Los Blancos star has insisted their personal relationship has improved a lot over the years.
"If you compare it with the old relationship we had, I tell you that today we get along quite well," he told Spanish radio station Onda Cero recently, as quoted by Marca.
"Before, there was almost no relationship. We respected each other because we played together and we knew that together we were one of the best centre-back pairings in the world.
"When you are growing and maturing, you leave aside things that you previously gave importance to and do not have now. That has made the relationship better.
"We speak about family things, about children..."
Pique and Ramos are part of the Spain squad that will face Costa Rica and Russia in the upcoming international break.
