Ramos: "With every passing day, I prefer the English Premier League"


Los Blancos defender Sergio Ramos wasn’t happy with the penalty awarded to Atletico Madrid in the Copa del Rey clash on Wednesday night and reckons it would not have been given if it was in the English Premier League.

Diego Simeone's side ran out 2-0 winners of the clash which made it Real Madrid's second defeat on the bounce.

However, Ramos expressed how he prefers the Premier League to Laliga and said they'll work hard to respond with a win in their next match against Espanyol.

"I'm not going to talk about controversial issues and certainly not that incident," Ramos told AS after the clash against arch rivals Atletico Madrid.

"The only thing I will say is that, with every passing day, I prefer the English Premier League.

"What am I talking about? Obviously not about the ball-boys ... the style of play, refereeing. People enjoy watching that competition. When one loses, it’s easy to focus on the refereeing decisions."

"Real Madrid as an institution obliges us to do our best to try and overcome this tie.

"Our focus is initially on Saturday’s game against Espanyol and then on the return leg."
