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."
