Michel Salgado revealed Sergio Ramos has "apologised" to the players after a disparaging interview. The fullback said: "Logically it is not something that I'm going to discuss. Those kind of conversations are private. The team is not going to talk about this issue. It is something that is settled. He has apologised and we are happy because he is a player that we need a lot.

"He has apologised and no one has asked him. It was left up to him.

"Yes, it could be a mistake of youth, but we all make mistakes, I'm the first one.

"But he has responded well, like a man, and spoken to us all face-to-face. Case closed."
