Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos has threatened club president Florentino Perez that he would be prepared to leave the club, according to AS.
After Real’s shock defeat to Ajax at the Santiago Bernabeu and an unplanned Champions League exit in the round of 16, Perez confronted the players in the dressing room and spoke to them sharply. He accused them all of showing a poor attitude in the game, lack of dedication, and “having too much time off”. He labelled their recent displays as disgraceful.
That was apparently the point where Ramos, who didn’t take part in the game due to deliberately caused suspension, couldn’t take any more. He stood up and retaliated by accusing Perez and the club board in turn of poor planning for this season and put the blame directly on the president and those around him in the club hierarchy for the recent failures. Then he added:
“Pay me and I will leave.”
The experienced defender ended his rant by reminding Perez that he had given everything and “busted a gut” for the badge, for the club, and even for Perez himself.
Perez afterwards reportedly held a meeting with other club officials to discuss immediate steps.
