Barcelona skipper Puyol on stunning bust-up: No problem with Real Madrid defender Ramos

Barcelona captain Carles Puyol has shrugged off his amazing clash with Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos at the end of last night's 5-0 victory.

Ramos was sent off for pushing Puyol in the face after the Real defender had scythed down a Barca player.

The Barca skipper insisted: "I went to defend a team-mate because I thought it was a very tough tackle [by Sergio Ramos].

"We have many friends in the Real Madrid dressing room, and there is no problem with that. Whatever happens on the field stays on the field.

"I have a very good relationship with Sergio Ramos, and the incident has already been forgotten. I have other things to think about that are more important.

"The win has given us a lot of confidence. The team has been very good, and now we have to continue doing well. We are a team with great players,"
