Sergio Ramos has no doubts that Real Madrid would have enjoyed even more success during his time at the club had Lionel Messi not been at Barcelona.
“We’ve suffered against Messi during these years,” Ramos said in his documentary series ‘The Legend of Sergio Ramos’.
“Perhaps if Barcelona didn’t have him, we would have won more titles.
“There was a time when we faced the best Barcelona in history. We had a great coach like [Jose] Mourinho, but it was hard for us to beat them.
“We didn’t win much and there was a lot of tension, caused by either them or by us.”
