It was claimed Ramos was talking about the sacked Chelsea manager when discussing Real's next coach, warning:
"Respect is won, it's not imposed. We've won titles, and team management is more important than the knowledge of a coach."
However, after their Champions League win at Viktoria Plzen, Ramos denied he was talking about Conte.
He said: "I did not speak at all about him, I generalized about the hard hand, but I did not talk about him.
"I just said that a coach has to earn respect.
"Since Cristiano (Ronaldo) left, the one in the spotlight is me, but I'm good."
