Sergio Ramos Ask For Real Madrid Fans To Back Team More

Sergio Ramos has urged Real Madrid fans to support the team after they were booed despite beating Malaga 2-1 on Saturday in La Liga.

The 30-year-old centre-back scored two goals in the opening ten minutes to set the home side on their way to their 13th win of the season, and although Ramos is aware of the high expectations at the Bernabeu, he is hoping that the fans remain behind the team.

The Los Blancos captain said, as reported by Goal:

“I’ve always said that we can never change the Bernabeu. I’ve spent many years here and like Marcelo said after the Cup game the other day, all of the great players have been whistled here at some point. It’s a wake-up call to make the team respond.

“But it’s in the difficult moments that we need them to be behind us, not kicking us when we are down. We know how our fans are and we like the way they are. The objective is that we all take this forward together.”

Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane had similar comments after the Malaga match, telling reporters:

“I hope it was through being demanding, rather than being nervous,” Zidane said of the supporters’ whistling.

“We need the crowd to give us calm, because what we have done up until now has been phenomenal.

“We ask that they help us and support us. I don’t criticise the people, they pay their entrance fee and they want more.

“But in a long season the Coach and the players need affection.”
