‘One tries to evade [the boos]. In the end you feel it, but I stay out of everything. It doesn’t affect my game,’ Ramos said. 

‘I would have liked another reception because people only remember the action of the final, and nobody remembers the death threats that my family and my children received. 

‘It is a very sensitive issue that people maybe take as a joke about and [that’s why they] whistle in a great stadium like this. My conscience is very clear. I already explained [what happened], and I do not have to give more explanations.’

Ramos insisted he had a ‘clear conscience’ and did not fear a negative reception prior to the match and stuck to that following the clash.

‘You never expect a reception that is not good because, as I said the other day, if these [English] fans have something good, it is that they have always been with the great players. It has not been like that, but I am very calm, with my conscience very clear in that aspect.

‘As I said before, I have never tried to hurt a colleague. There are people who may have misunderstood it, but these are football things. It will not change anything in my game or in me.’
