Ramos Has His Say On Neymar/Cavani Row

Sergio Ramos Has His Say On Neymar/Edinson Cavani Row

By Keegan Kruger - Oct 12, 2017 06:30 PM @KeeganKruger

Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos has commented on the rift over set-piece duties between former FC Barcelona striker Neymar and Paris Saint-Germain teammate Edinson Cavani.

Cavani Lifts Lid On Row With Neymar

The Spanish defender, who was confirmed as a nominee for the 2017 Ballon d'Or on Monday, told members of the media that one would never see the same spat at Los Blancos.

"That kind of thing won't happen at Madrid because everything is planned before the game. It is all organised and co-ordinated," Ramos said, according to France Football.

"Cristiano takes the penalties, and if he isn't, then I do. There is even a third designated taker before each game.

"Cavani and Neymar are two great players, and I'm sure they'll come to an agreement over it."

Ramos also touched on his relationship with manager Zinedine Zidane, and revealed why he thinks they work so well together.

"We have a good friendship. I like being loyal to him, and things with him are always simple and clear. It is a beautiful relationship, and I have a friend for life with the coach," Ramos added.

"Diego Maradona once said, 'It is white or black but never grey', and that's what it is like with Zidane."

@Maredo agree, neymar's head is too big and he needs a reality check. cavani took over from ibra in 2015 and is supposed to be the talisman. neymar is the newcomer and needs to learn to respect those that have already built a platform for themselves with hard work, he cannot just assume top status from riding the barcelona wave. the coach needs to be firm with neymar.

Thw coach is responsible for that fight. Like Ramis says "who takes what, from what distance and frm which angle" is decided right frm the beginning of the season.

Neymar lacks respect. He should have asked Cavani to allow him to take penalties nicely n not on the field of play. Besides his new n a new player has to relax n watch the situation first. Look at Mbampe, his cool n ever smiling.
