International

Mou Blames Ramos

The already frosty relationship between Jose Mourinho and Sergio Ramos is surely a little icier today.

The Real Madrid manager effectively blamed his stand-in skipper for the goal Los Blancos conceded against Manchester United last night.

The Special One was furious when United striker Danny Welbeck headed in the game’s opening goal from a corner.

Real clearly worked on stopping United’s set-pieces, considering the fact that route-one has been one of their most predictable routes to goal this season.

And so Mou thought conceding a set-piece goal was especially sloppy for his side.

It was Ramos who was tasked with marking Welbeck at corners, only to let the England international get the drop on him to score.

And so without naming him directly, Mou has laid the fault for Welbeck’s poacher's goal at the feet of Ramos.

"If you see it on the television, you can see what happened," he said last night.

"We train, we organise ourselves, we give each player a job, we watch videos of the opponent to know their strong points at dead balls.

"But when you lose your individual battle, organisation does not matter. They scored in their first attack, and the game changed."

Ramos certainly will not like Mourinho calling him out, although the defender practically has no place to hide, and raised his hand for letting Welbeck score.

"He got the better of me," the Spanish international stopper admitted.

"It was not a corner in the first place, that is certain, but the margin of error in the Champions League is tiny.”

Meanwhile, skipper for the night Ramos said that despite the fact that they conceded an away goal to tough United, the tie is far from over.

"We are happy with the attitude, but not happy with the result,” he said.

“We will go to Old Trafford to win, and that is where it will be decided. We are up against a great opponent, and we must give them the maximum respect."
