Ramos has ‘clear conscience’ over Salah incident

Ramos has ‘clear conscience’ over Salah incident

Sergio Ramos will lead Spain out at Wembley, and Enrique hopes he will be able to call upon the services of the Real Madrid stalwart for long into the future. Jurgen Klopp later accused Ramos of flooring Salah "like a wrestler".

The former Barcelona manager will make his first appearance on Saturday in a game against England at Wembley.

Ramos, addressing a press conference ahead of the match, said, "I'm not really concerned about that", when asked about the possible reaction towards him from the English crowd.

"I don't know what's going to happen in the future but that's a position I haven't had any doubts about", Enrique said. I know the English fans will give the receptions players deserve.

De Gea, 27, has been on the receiving end of lingering backlash over his place in the side following a less than impressive World Cup campaign which included a number of high profile mistakes.

Ramos' tussle with Salah had resulted in an injury to the Egyptian.

Fernando Hierro was in temporary charge of 2010 World champions Spain in Russian Federation.

A former Barcelona boss, there was plenty of speculation that Enrique's appointment would spell the end of Ramos' global involvement.

"I think their game will be based on pace and pressing", he says.

Isco is also on board with Enrique's decision to ban phones at the dinner table, adding: "It's always good to have a little bit of discipline, not having phones at meals is a good idea to me, these days we are often more focused on machines than speaking with our team mates".

He has of course got a great personality and a great presence on the pitch.

When the fixture was announced in May, as part of the inaugural Uefa Nations League, few would have expected it to be the visitors confronting questions about style, youth and an underperforming goalkeeper, following a humiliating World Cup exit. "Spain has been a reference in world football for 10 years". We have the power to evolve the model, I am convinced that we will do it.
