Ramos denies Ronaldo rift

Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos insists there has not been a falling out between him and superstar forward Cristiano Ronaldo.

Reports of a rift between the two men emerged after Ronaldo publicly questioned Real's experience in the wake of Los Merengues' 3-1 defeat to Tottenham in the UEFA Champions League in November. 

However, Ramos has rejected the claims and believes both Ronaldo and himself are working towards the same objectives, perhaps only in their own unique ways.

"Nothing has ever happened between him and me," the Spaniard told TVE. "There has always been a great friendship between us.

"We have a lot of personality and have some different opinions, but we're pulling in the same direction."
