Liverpool forward, Roberto Firmino, has described Sergio Ramos as “an idiot” for his comments following the Champions League final.
Ramos criticised Firmino, Loris Karius and Mohamed Salah, days after the match which Real won 3-1 to secure a third successive Champions League crown.
The Real captain said Salah tugged at him first, before the Egyptian forward was forced off with a shoulder injury during the first half, and that he could have played on.
Ramos then said: “I am only missing Roberto Firmino saying he got a cold because a drop of my sweat landed on him.”
But speaking ahead of Brazil’s game against Austria on Sunday, Firmino responded.
“I prefer not to make any comments, I think he has a view because he was the champion but I thought he was an idiot for what he said but that’s okay,” he said.
Firmino was also questioned about Roma and Brazil goalkeeper Alisson, who has been attracting interest from of Europe’s top clubs including Liverpool.
“Sometimes I talk to him about it and have a joke with him, saying ‘you should come to Liverpool’, he said.
“His agent is sorting his future but it wouldn’t be a bad thing to have him here at Liverpool.”
