Sergio Ramos is no stranger to playing the role of pantomime villain, and he was cast again during Real Madrid’s 5-0 win at Viktoria Plzen on Wednesday night.
It was the first European game in charge for Santi Solari, who has replaced Julen Lopetegui on a temporary basis after the former Spain boss was sacked.
But rather than focussing on a brilliant attacking display from Los Blancos, many were left wondering how Ramos was not sent off for an apparent elbow on Plzen’s Milan Havel, which left him with a bloody nose.
It didn’t take long for people to take to Twitter and voice their displeasure at the lack of punishment for the 32-year-old Los Blancos captain.

Sergio Ramos' commitment to being an asshole is unparalleled. there was no reason for this – he simply couldn't help himself. ¯_(ツ)_/¯ pic.twitter.com/WxcVdvFYpg— amadí (@amadoit__) November 7, 2018
Human dirtbag Ramos just elbowed a player in the face and split his nose open, blood pouring and the ref did nothing, must be a day ending in y. Fantastic job all of you.— Barcelista (@Barcelista) November 7, 2018
Liverpool fans are still yet to forgive him for his role in Mohamed Salah’s elbow injury back in last season’s Champions League final.
