Ramos Reveals What He Shouted At Pique After Red Card

Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos received his 22nd career red card in the latest El Clasico and furiously shouted at Gerard Pique as he walked off the pitch. He has now revealed what he told the FC Barcelona defender.

Ramos was given his marching orders in the 77th minute for a bad tackle on Lionel Messi and reacted furiously afterwards, shouting in the direction of Pique and sarcastically applauding him as walked off the pitch.

"Pique likes to talk about referees. I said to him (when leaving the pitch) that with so much pressure and complaining in every tweet, it's going to end up having an effect," Ramos said, as quoted by ESPN.

"I wasn't recriminating the referee for anything, no. I was talking to Pique, not to the referee.

"Sometimes referees get things right, other times they don't. It was a key moment. But my reaction was to Pique, not the referee.

"Barcelona have a way of understanding football and they always talk about the referees and maybe that ends up bearing results.

"We're not going to talk about the referees, though, that's not our style. It's not our sport.

"I wasn't directing (gestures) at the referee, but at Pique, who is the one who always likes to talk about referees."

Pique himself admitted he saw Ramos' furious reaction, but insisted that he did not hear what his national team colleague had said.

"I didn't hear him, I saw that he was pointing at me, I suppose he was referring to the red card," the Barca defender explained.

"When he gets home and sees the replay, he will regret (his reaction), because it's a clear dismissal. It's a straight red card."
