Ramos: Real Madrid have to improve to please the supporters
Real Madrid battled their way to a narrow 2-1 win over Real Betis at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu on Sunday evening, Sergio Ramos popping up with a vital header to win the match in front of previously disappointed supporters; something the captain remarked needed to be addressed.
A mistake from Keylor Navas gifted the away side an own goal early on, forcing Los Blancos to battle back from behind courtesy of goals from Cristiano Ronaldo and the club captain himself.
“In football what is important is the result, but it is right that we have to improve our play a little more so that the fans can enjoy it,” Ramos told Movistar+ after the game.
“I am happy to score again, I dedicate it to my wife. It was a strange game, the team did some things well, Betis defended well and the few chances we had didn’t end in a goal, so we had to go on the counter.
“It was important to win to put ourselves top.”
Navas’ mistake almost proved costly for Zinedine Zidane’s men, but the Costa Rica international made up for his error slightly by making a brilliant save in second-half stoppage time.
“This is a tough stadium to play in, the level of expectation is huge,” Ramos continued.
“When the players make mistakes they need some care.
“Keylor saved us with a great save to deny a Betis equaliser and I was happy to see that he had recovered a little.”
“Barcelona completed a historic comeback… in every sense,” Ramos finished.
