Old friends. Ronaldo not only hugged Ramos at the meeting, but also helped to avoid a possible problem on the field
The match in Saudi Arabia was friendly in the truest sense of the word.
PSG played yesterday against a mixed team of Al Nasr and Al Hilal stars. In the end, the Parisians won with a score of 5:4, but, in addition to the score, many interesting moments happened that evening.
For example, the meeting between Cristiano Ronaldo and Sergio Ramos in the tunnel before the match.
The Portuguese not only hugged the former teammate, but also warned him of a potential problem. Krish warned him about this, saying:
Players are prohibited from wearing any kind of jewelry on the pitch as it could harm them or other players.
After this short dialogue, both players burst out laughing, and Ramos hastily took off his earring.
No wonder Ramos and Ronaldo get along so well, they played together at Real Madrid for almost 9 years.
However, there were rumors that the two did not communicate for a long time after Luka Modric received the Ballon d’Or in 2018. Spanish publication Marca reported that Ramos and several of his then teammates did not like Ronaldo’s reaction to the Croat’s triumph and began to distance themselves from him in the dressing room.
However, yesterday’s episode proves that even if there was a discord between them, it is in the past anyway.
