Liverpool striker Roberto Firmino has labelled Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos an "idiot" after his recent controversial comments regarding the UEFA Champions League final.
Although Los Blancos walked away 3-1 winners in Kyiv last month, there were a number of incidents during the match that stole all the headlines, and Ramos has since been accused of deliberately elbowing goalkeeper Loris Karius in the head before the first goal – an event that is believed to have caused the German to suffer a concussion.
These claims got the Spain international, who is currently in camp with La Furia Roja as they prepare for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, worked up in a recent press conference.
"After, the goalkeeper said that I dazed him with a clash with me. Now, I am only missing Roberto Firmino saying he got a cold because a drop of my sweat landed on him," Ramos said, according to Spanish newspaper AS.
That comment did not sit well with the Selecao star, and he had a brief response.
"I prefer not to make any comments," Firmino said at a news conference at Brazil's pre-World Cup training camp in London.
"I think he has a view because he was the champion, but I thought he was an idiot for what he said, but that is okay."
Ramos has also been on the receiving end of a lot of criticism regarding his tackle on Mohamed Salah, which left the Egyptian with a dislocated shoulder.
