Ramos celebró con rabia el gol ante el Valladolid | LALIGA

Sergio Ramos was the centre of attention as Real Madrid beat Real Valladolid. He scored from the penalty spot to clinch the 2-0 win but was also one of the players whistled by supporters when the game as still goalless. 

The defender, though, was not annoyed with his treatment from the home fans: "I honestly did not notice [the jeering], but those of us who are here the longest must take on that role. And, as captain, I am proud that they fill my rucksack with stones and to have to pull from the front.

"My pride is what has got me where I am today, and beating all the records I have beaten. We understand how the fans feel. We are the ones who must change this, and after the goal it seemed like the Bernabeu lifted again. With more results, we will get back the confidence of the fans in a team which has won a lot."

Ramos also highlighted the team's reaction late on, when they were struggling: "When things don't go you have to stay calm. The team grew against a rival that played well. We were on a tough run, we understand the fans' feeling and we're responsible for turning things around. The Bernabeu came back with the first goal. And with the results, the supporters will believe in the team again." 

On stand in coach Santiago Solari, he said: "We are with the coach, whoever that is, until the end. We're going to go little by little to forget this bad run."
