Sergio Ramos is an idiot - Roberto Firmino

Champions League By: Uche Duru | 07/06/2018

Liverpool forward, Roberto Firmino has cussed out Sergio Ramos following the Real Madrid defender's continuous revel in last month's 3-1 Champions League final win over Liverpool.

The Spanish giants lifted their third successive Champions League trophy after Gareth Bale pulled up a heroic performance by delivering a brilliant brace at the encounter to seal the European deal.

Liverpool pointed accusing fingers towards Ramos' direction after the Real Madrid captain tangled with Mo Salah in the first half which resulted in a shoulder injury on the Egyptian who was later changed in tears.

That challenge resulted in an online petition for UEFA and FIFA to take action against the Spain defender, which passed 500,000 signatures.

"I am only missing Roberto Firmino saying he got a cold because a drop of my sweat landed on him," the 32-year-old told Spanish newspaper AS.

Such a derogatory comment didn't go well with Firmino who afterward branded, Ramos an "Idiot" following his statement.

"I prefer not to make any comments," he said in a news conference at Brazil's pre-World Cup training camp in London.

"I think he has a view because he was the champion but I thought he was an idiot for what he said, but that's okay."
