Reports: Real Madrid president Florentino Perez involved in heated argument with star player after Ajax defeat

Florentino Perez pointed the finger at the players after Real Madrid’s defeat to Ajax in the Champions League but club captain Sergio Ramos was having none of it.

Goal reports that an incensed Florentino Perez had a go at the Real Madrid players after the 4-1 defeat to Ajax at the Bernabeu but was met with resistance from club captain Sergio Ramos.

Perez reportedly questioned the players’ desire to play for the badge after the meek defeat saw them crash out of the Champions League while Ramos, in riposte, blamed the lack of planning at the club. Santiago Solari was also involved, but refused to step down as caretaker manager of the club according to the report.

This heated interaction left both parties fuming and is said to have cast serious doubt over Ramos’ future at the club, despite the defender having a contract until 2021.

The row between Ramos and Perez underlines a period of instability and change at the club, with Jose Mourinho also touted to make a sensational return in the immediate future as Santiago Solari’s replacement.
