Real Madrid playmaker Sergio Ramos has taken aim at former team-mate Cristiano Ronaldo following the Portuguese's move from Real Madrid to Juventus.

Cristiano Ronaldo moved from Real Madrid to Juventus over the summer in a near £100million move after establishing himself as arguably the best player in Los Blancos history.

Despite being Real Madrid's all-time top goal scorer, Ronaldo suggested that Juventus was more of a 'family' than he had in the Spanish capital.

On hearing this Sergio Ramos responded to Ronaldo's statement by telling the Juventus star that "no player is bigger than the club".

"Here were have always felt like a family, so I don’t know what he was talking about," he said. "We have had lots of success, which is because we are a family and he was part of that family, which we have continued to have.

"It’s obviously a negative when you lose a player like Cristiano Ronaldo, but we can continue to win and in Real Madrid’s history many have come and gone, but Real Madrid continue to win.

"No one is above Real Madrid, whatever happens Real Madrid will continue to live on and it was his choice to leave. The decisions are not mine to make, but the doors are always open to those that want to be part of Real Madrid.

"Losing Ronaldo was hard, but no player is above Real Madrid and we still have the hunger to improve and win more titles. The mindset we have is more important than any individuals in the team."
