Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos has once again discussed claims that he intentionally hurt African superstar Mohamed Salah in last season's UEFA Champions League final, and seemingly mocked Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp in the process.
A few months ago, the Reds' German boss described Ramos as "ruthless and brutal" for the first-half challenge on Salah that forced the Egyptian off early in their UCL final against Real in May.
The Spaniard was once again asked about Klopp's comments recently, and he responded by teasing the manager for his record in cup finals.
"I have given my opinion on the matter. I have no intention of hurting a player deliberately," he said, according to Sport.
"(Klopp) will be wanting to explain not winning the final, but it's not the first that he has lost.
"Some of us have been operating at a very high level for many years – not sure he can say the same. Let Klopp worry about his own players."
Klopp has tasted defeat in a League Cup final, a UEFA Europa League final and a Champions League final during his time at Liverpool so far.
