Rebellious Ramos

Revista discuss the growing rift between Real Madrid head coach Jose Mourinho and defender Sergio Ramos.

"It is clearly a clash of personalities that will have to be sorted. Mourinho will do his best to get the best out of the Ramos but also to remind him who is the boss."

Quotes of the week

The Spain international was reportedly involved in a spat with Mourinho after he was left on the bench against Manchester City and rumours about Ramos' desire to annoy Mourinho increased on Sunday during the game against Deportivo La Coruna when the defender wore Mesut Ozil's No.10 shirt under his own.

"Ramos was dropped and prior to that there have been a series of outbursts from the training ground between Mourninho and Ramos," said Graham Hunter on Revista.

"We know that after the defeat to Sevilla earlier this season wanted to stay over as he is from there but Mourninho said no and Ramos was really ticked off about that.

"Mourniho would never make a decision about a players position simply to spite somebody or to slap them down, he patently thought that

Raphael Varane had earned his position. Anyone who has been watching Varane's progression would say that was a fair shout. So what is going on behind the scenes and what is happening on the pitch are two totally different things."

Why me?

Guillem Balague believes that Ramos would have known exactly what he was doing when he decided to wear Ozil's shirt and says there is a big personality clash between him and Mourniho

"Ramos knows that everything that happens on the pitch gets analysed and super analysed by the media - it was not an innocent gesture, Ramos basically backed Ozil up when he was replaced," explained Guillem.

"Mourinho has been saying that there is a problem with the attitude of the players but the only one who pays is Ramos - he gets taken out of the team, he gets played out of position! He is saying what is going on - why me?

"It is clearly a clash of personalities that will have to be sorted. Mourinho will do his best to get the best out of the Ramos but also to remind him who is the boss."

Giving his all

The future of Ramos at Real Madrid may not be clear however Graham Hunter believes he will keep on giving his best for the club and Mourinho on the field.

"Ramos spoke to me in the summer about football in England - he did not have a view that he would never go there but he was not enamoured by what he saw from a distance of the Premier League.

"Who is to say that Jose Mourinho won't be leaving Real Madrid before Ramos but for the moment I think the spotlight will be on how Ramos is performing and I bet that no matter how much the argument increases, Mourinho gets everything from Ramos every time - it is just the way he is built."
