Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos: You cannot overlook Keylor

Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos was happy for Thibaut Courtois after a winning debut against Leganes.

However, Ramos was also keen to support Keylor Navas after his axing.

He said, "We always say that Real Madrid holds its doors open for great players. Courtois is a top-class keeper, he has shown that over his career, but you cannot overlook what Keylor has done over the years. Competition like this makes the squad better, that is a positive.

"Making the manager's decisions harder is a really strong sign. All of us will get game time and chances over the course of the season."

On his goal, Ramos added: “After Cristiano I was the second taker and so now I've taken his role on. I am delighted to be able to contribute with goals as well. As long as I score I know Benzema won't mind me taking them."
