Relationship With Pique Is Very Good, Says Ramos

Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos spoke about a difficult week for his country following the violence at the Catalan independence referendum last Sunday, but insists his relationship with Pique is still 'very good.'
Ahead of Spain next World Cup Qualifier against Albania, Ramos said: "Fans have the right to express their opinion. They are free in that regard.

"We have a great relationship, despite our different viewpoints and personalities. Mixing politics and sport is a mistake.

"As a Spaniard, I don't like what's happening, but let's hope it all gets resolved quickly and we can get back to living in a free democracy and enjoying sports, which is what makes us all happy.
 
"It's true that this week hasn't been easy for any of us because politics and sports got mixed.

"I'm Spain's captain and I wanted to talk first with my coach and with Pique and stand aside of this, as I said before it would have been a mistake if we mixed both sports and politics because above everything we have a common goal that is the qualification for Russia World Cup and that's the objective of the whole team.

"Gery (Gerard Pique) already said it the other day, we have a very good relationship despite our nature and the way that we think or feel, and not only with him but with the whole group, each one of us are different and we have the right to think and feel differently, if we stay all in the same boat and go in the same direction we shouldn't have any problem."
