Ramos on Salah challenge: 'My conscience is really clear'

Ramos on Salah challenge: 'My conscience is really clear'

He said, "I'm not really concerned about that". I'm not going to be affected by that at all.

"I never go onto the pitch with the intention of injuring another professional so I have a very clear conscience", he said.

La Furia Roja will be looking to Isco to lead the resurgence of the former world champions, with the player's creativity sure to be a lethal weapon for Spain.

Another aspect of Ramos' Madrid baggage in the spotlight this week is his relationship with new Spain head coach Luis Enrique, given their previous positions on either side of El Clasico's bitter divide.

"It's always good to have a little bit of discipline, not having phones at meals is a good idea to me, these days we are often more focused on machines than speaking with our team mates", Isco told a news conference on Thursday.

Enrique, too, gave a glowing report on the man he has decided will continue with the captain's armband under his tenure.

Ramos: "He is the player with the most personality on and off the field for Spain".

However, while attention has been focused on the role in between the sticks, Enrique feels the more pressing issue at hand is taking Spain to the next level beyond the widely known "tiki-taka" style of play which hindered their performances in Russian Federation.

"He is a great leader in any situation, a person who drags in and out. We had to find clues and solve riddles", Isco added.

Spain had been thriving under Lopetegui entering the World Cup, but the shocking coaching change culminated with the team's elimination against host Russian Federation in the tournament's round of 16.

Spain didn't have its best performances during the group stage of the 2018 World Cup. We have the power to evolve the model, I am convinced that we will do it.
