Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos was caught on camera lashing out in anger at the youngster Sergio Reguilon during a training session. Ramos in anger threw the ball towards the 21-year-old. The incident took place during the training session ahead of Real Madrid game against Viktoria Plzen. Ramos suffered an accidental elbow to the nose and that led to his frustration.
He then got hold of the ball nearby and kicked it in anger towards the young Reguilon who managed to get away from the speeding football. Not just it, Ramos continued to be in anger as at the end of the handball drill, the Spain captain kicked another ball at the 21-year-old. Ramos, however, later apologised for his behaviour.
“Although it does not seem, are quite common situations, but no excuse, my reaction should not be that. We always go to full, don’t we, Regui? At the end of the team victory together,” he wrote on Twitter. Real Madrid’s Sergio Ramos Forced to Change his Phone Number After Mohamed Salah’s Injury
Aunque no os lo parezca, son situaciones bastante habituales, pero no es excusa, mi reacción no debió ser esa.
Nosotros siempre vamos a full, ¿verdad, Regui? ¡¡Al final victoria del equipo juntos @sergio_regui!! 😜🤥😜🤥

This is not the first time Ramos has found himself in the centre of a controversy regarding disciplinary issues. Earlier in May this year, Ramos was criticised for his robust tackle on Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah, which resulted in latter’s shoulder injury. Meanwhile, Ramos happens to be the most booked footballer in Champions League and LaLiga history. Ramos is also the most booked Spanish international footballer in history.
