Real Madrid captain Ramos mocks Klopp: All excuses; he doesn't compete at our level

Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos has needled Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp over his management record as the fallout over the Champions League final continues.

Klopp branded Ramos' display in Liverpool's 3-1 defeat to Madrid as "ruthless and brutal" as Mohamed Salah was forced off with a shoulder injury in the first half.

And before the European Super Cup against Atletico Madrid, Ramos responded: "It's not the first final he's lost, (maybe) he wants to use that as an excuse for losing.

"Some of us have been operating at a very high level for many years, not sure he can say the same.

"Klopp's words? There have been many repercussions after what happened to Salah in the Champions League final. Let Klopp worry about his own players.

"To keep him quiet, he's one of the coaches I voted for him as the Best of the Year."
