Sergio Ramos Calls Red Card Excessive, Says Did Not Try to Injure Lionel Messi


Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos has said that he did not try to injure Lionel Messi and added that he felt the red card was excessive. 

The central defender was sent off in the 77th minute for a very late challenge on Messi, as he thundered into a two-footed tackle on the Argentinean near the halfway line. 

Ramos, however, said that he had no intentions of hurting the Barcelona man and thought the punishment was too much



Speaking to reporters after the match, as per ​Fourfourtwo, he said, "The red card was excessive. I was not going to harm anyone. In my opinion, that was a yellow card, not a red. I was too late, but there was no contact. I never have the intention to hurt anyone."

Following his dismissal, the Spaniard confronted the referee Alejandro Hernandez, before going on to sarcastically applaud. He exchanged words with Spain teammate and defensive partner, Gerard Pique before leaving the field
