Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos has played down boos at the Bernabeu during the 2-1 La Liga win against Malaga on Saturday but urged Los Blancos supporters to get behind the team.
Ramos scored twice to seal victory and end a tough week — that had seen him booed by supporters of his former club Sevilla before scoring an own goal against them to contribute to Real’s first defeat in 41 games — on a high note.
“I’ve always said that we can never change the Bernabeu,” Ramos said. “I’ve spent many years here and like Marcelo said after the [Copa del Rey] game the other day, all of the great players have been whistled here at some point. It’s a wake-up call to make the team respond.
“But it’s in the difficult moments that we need them to be behind us, not kicking us when we are down.
“We know how our fans are and we like the way they are. The objective is that we all take this forward together.”
The win against Malaga kept Real four points clear at the top of La Liga.
