Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos, helped guide his squad to their thirteenth UEFA Champions League title this year through a tough daring match against Liverpool making club history.
However, the star captain has been red carded over 33 times in his playing career which has seen him labelled the dirtiest and naughty boy of football by many.

Going into the UEFA Champions League finals, many opposing fans and including those of Liverpool were hoping that the Reds of Anfield could be the team to stop Real Madrid from winning their 3rd consecutive trophy.
For Liverpool, a lot of their play was around the quick and versatile Mo Salah who came into this game having scored over 44 goals in all competitions and with a lot of attention focused on him to guide the Reds to their first major trophy under Jurgen Klopp.
In the 27th minute, the Egyptian Maestro was substituted after an injury that he sustained in a collision with Sergio Ramos. The circumstances under which Salah got injured has gotten a lot of attention with many suggesting that the Spanish International intended to injure the Liverpool talisman.
Looking at the different angles prior to that there are indications that Mo Salah put his arm into Sergio Ramos’ hand and during the fall, Salah ended up landing badly on his left shoulder.
Yesterday, a hospital from the US came out and stated that Liverpool shot stopper Loris Karius got a concussion after Ramos knocked him.
The Los Blancos defender came out stated that he had been in touch with Salah and that the Egyptian was recovering well.
Responding to the Loris Karius head injury, Ramos stated that all he was waiting for was Roberto Firminho to come and say that he got a cold after his sweat landed on him.
You can’t help but laugh at this level of humor from a man who has been branded as a dirty player who some claim that sets out to play dirty and injure his opponents.
