Roberto Firmino has branded Sergio Ramos an “idiot” after the Real Madrid captain continued to revel in last month’s 3-1 Champions League final win over Liverpool.
In the eyes of Liverpool supporters, Ramos was unquestionably the villain of the piece after he tangled with Mohamed Salah in the first half, leaving the Egyptian superstar with a shoulder injury that saw him substituted.
“I am only missing Roberto Firmino saying he got a cold because a drop of my sweat landed on him,” the 32-year-old said.
Such a mocking tone has not gone down well with Firmino.
“I prefer not to make any comments,” he said in 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’s okay.”
