“When there’s a bad result I like to go out and face it, I feel more comfortable than when things are going well. Now comes the most delicate moment because the margin of error is mnimo, any mistake before the City or Sunday can cost you a title. The decisive week arrives and this is where you see the cough, the children must be set aside. We depend on ourselves and it’s time to talk more on the field and less off,” areng Ramos at the pre-Champions knockout press conference.
On the specific case of Gareth Bale and his performance this season, Ramos explains that “as a capitn” is not his self in “judging what other players do in his personal life.” “Here everyone we’re big-time and sper professionals to know what we need to do and the team we represent.
