Sergio Ramos 'not aware' at being booed by home fans
Real Madrid's campaign has been off to a dismal start, and fans are upset with the team's performance. Julen Lopetegui was sacked after a humiliating 1-5 defeat against eternal rivals Barcelona. After Santiago Solari took charge of the team, they have won two matches. However, in the match against Valladolid, every move of Sergio Ramos was jeered by fans. Here's how he reacted.
Real Madrid squad booed during the match
Real Madrid did manage to win their league clash against Real Valladolid, with an 83rd-minute strike from Vinicius Junior and a late spot-kick from Ramos. During the match, every time Ramos, Bale, or Benzema touched the ball, boos resounded across the stadium.
Sergio's comments on the fans' reaction
Sergio Ramos, on being asked about the jeers from fans, commented that he did not notice the jeers, but the senior players do have to carry the load on themselves. He added that the team needs to continue winning and bring back the confidence. He also said that when the time is tough one must remain calm.
Real Madrid fans have a history of jeering their players
This is not the first time that Real Madrid fans have booed and jeered their own players. They have done the same, earlier, to legends like Ronaldo and Zidane. They also jeered Gareth Bale in his very first season at Real Madrid when he moved there from Tottenham. Even Brazil's Ronaldo once said that he never felt loved by the Bernabeu fans.
What next for Real Madrid?
Los Blancos will next face Plzen in their Champions League group-stage encounter and only a convincing win can probably restore the faith of the Real Madrid loyalists. The match is scheduled on Thursday, November 8 at 1:30 AM.
