Real Madrid midfielder Modric slams Ramos critics

Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric has dismissed critics of captain Sergio Ramos.

The 33-year-old wanted to remind reporters that character over-rides what happens on the pitch.

"Ramos is a great player and a great captain," Modric said in the pre-match press conference.

"In my opinion, all the criticism he has received is irrelevant: in football, everyone has very little memory.

"He has character and I am sure that criticism does not matter to him."
