Real Madrid captain and Spanish international, Sergio Ramos has reacted to his side’s Champions League exit at the hands of Manchester City.
On Friday, Real Madrid were trailing 2-1 from the first leg at Bernabeu and got the same result at the Etihad Stadium to a Raheem Sterling goal.
Karim Benzema scored in the first half to cancel out Sterling’s first goal, before Gabriel Jesus struck in the second half to ensure Pep Guardiola’s side qualified for the quarter-final on 4-2 aggregate.
Sergio Ramos who did not feature in the second leg due to suspension in his reaction admitted that he was ‘saddened’ with his team’s exit from this year’s Champions League.
He also described Real Madrid’s season this year as a ‘bittersweet’.
He said this in his tweet,
“An atypical and strange season ends, very hard for everyone. The taste is bittersweet because we are the Real Madrid and we are bound to win it all.”
“We must give credit to the League, and more to such an exceptional one, and the Super Cup, but we are saddened by the elimination of the Champions League.”
