Sergio Ramos hit back at outspoken Spain team-mate Gerard Pique after the Barcelona defender criticised the values of bitter rivals Real Madrid.
Ramos and Pique have frequently clashed publicly and that was the case again on Tuesday, despite being in camp together following Spain’s 2-0 international friendly win over France.
“What Pique says won’t change the values, our badge, our history or our titles,” Ramos said.
“What he says will provoke headlines and sell newspapers but we live off of that.
“In every box seat strings are pulled, but if anything, they [Barcelona] should in general have more to be quiet about than we do.”
