Spain coach Enrique explains going with Man City defender Laporte over Real Madrid's Ramos

Spain coach Luis Enrique says Manchester City defender Aymeric Laporte deserved his Euros call.

Enrique went with Laporte over Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos.

He said this morning of Laporte: "He is a top level player, he is a great reinforcement for the team. I would like you not to link Ramos's loss with the incorporation of other players. There is a possibility that Ramos could recover before the competition starts, but I see it difficult.

"It has been a decision that we have thought about a lot. I spoke with him at the Madrid-Sevilla half-time, but we only talked about the physical. I keep yesterday's conversation private. It is not easy to convey something that is not positive for him. I have to stick to what is best for the team.

"Any thing related to Sergio Ramos generates controversy. I know what it means to train at the highest level. I hope that does not affect the team, which is ready to compete."
