There was outrage after Sevilla defender, Sergio Ramos refused to sign a Real Madrid shirt.
A video of him snubbing a fan’s request has since gone viral on social media.
The defender has defended his actions after the video was released.
He wrote: “Before that moment I had already signed about 6 [Real Madrid] shirts. And then there are people who auction them or sell them on the internet.”
In the clip, Ramos was signing jerseys for supporters. However, when one fan asked him to autograph a Madrid shirt, the 37-year-old waved them away, drawing criticism from some corners.
Ramos spent 16 years as a Madrid player and won five La Liga titles and four Champions League crowns, among other trophies, before he left the club to join Paris Saint-Germain. He then returned to his former team Sevilla last summer.
Ramos and his Sevilla team have won just one of their last 10 matches in all competitions. They will hope to put an end to that miserable run when they take on Real Sociedad in their next La Liga match.
