Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos has hit out at manager Rafael Benitez following his comments after the draw with city rivals Atletico Madrid.
The former Liverpool and Chelsea manager blamed Ramos for the challenge on Tiago that led to a penalty in the first half, even though it was saved by Keylor Navas, and was not happy with the team's overall performance in the match.
"We all felt that we let two points slip. We had the game under control in the first half and the only mistake was giving away the penalty," Benitez told Cadena Ser.
"We talked many times in the week ahead of the game observing how Atletico can pounce on the slightest error. Players are not fools; they know when they've made a mistake."
Ramos took offence to being called out over his "mistake" and responded by criticising his manager for the tactical decisions he took in the game.
"It's fine to talk about my mistake. What about the changes? I would like to think that what he needs to say, he'll tell me when we next see each other," he told AS.
"It neither worries nor annoys me. We all make mistakes and no one makes an error on purpose. My mistake had nothing to do with the overall result.
"It happens to us all, players and coaches. My mistakes over my career have helped me learn. It was a silly blunder and that's all, there is no need to go into it any further.
"What does rankle with me is not taking maximum points, which would have seen us on top of the table."
Los Blancos sit in second place in La Liga, but are yet to lose a games this season.
