Pique talks up Sergio Ramos relationship

Barcelona defender Gerard Pique has insisted that his relationship with Real Madrid’s Sergio Ramos is ‘respectful’.

The Spanish pair have been involved in some heated debates during a season which saw Madrid win more than Barcelona for the first time in a number of years, capturing the Champions League and La Liga title.

A number of incidents involving Pique and Ramos suggested that their relationship, which is good when both play for Spain, had taken a sour turn but the Barcelona centre back has played down such reports.

“This is a show that people consume a lot. Sergio and I know our relationship, it is very respectful and very cordial,” he told Movistar.

“When we get together here, we get closer. We are two who have been here for a long time.

 “Each one defends his own, we are people that act with a lot of vehemence and that means may be clashes, but always from the respect. There has not been any bad word in the press.”

Ramos will play no part in Spain’s friendly against Colombia this evening following the Champions League final win over Juventus at the weekend.
