Sergio Ramos makes huge revelation over Raheem Sterling ‘stamp’

Sergio Ramos has shed new light on his alleged ‘stamp’ on Raheem Sterling by posting a video to Twitter appearing to show what really happened.

The Spain defender was criticised for what appeared to be a cynical foul on the England forward in the Three Lions’ 3-2 win in the Nations League.

It’s not the first time Ramos has been involved in a contentious moment on a football pitch, and fingers were pointed at the Real Madrid legend.

Until now Ramos has been tight-lipped over what happened, but on Wednesday – two days after the fixture – the Spaniard broke his silence on social media.

Posting a video to Twitter, which showed the incident from a different angel, Ramos accompanied the footage with the caption: "Nothing else to say".

The video appears to show Sterling reacting to a previous tackle on him, before Ramos had even reached the Manchester City forward.

It then shows Ramos running away from Sterling and clipping his boot accidentally. A stamp isn’t visible at any point.

The incident with Sterling wasn’t the only talked about moment from the match involving Ramos on Monday.

The Real Madrid star was also the subject of a tough tackle from Eric Dier, who was booked for going in on the Spaniard firmly.

After the match, Dier said: "[Ramos] just congratulated me. I just think the ball was there to be won and I think I won it. I don’t think it was a foul or a yellow card, really.

"It’s important to respect them, but at the same time, once we start the game, it’s every man for himself and we have to put our foot down, put a marker down and be aggressive.

"Still with respect, but we have to be aggressive, be on the front foot and show that nothing is going to intimidate us."
