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

Luis Enrique Spain 2018

Jurgen Klopp later accused Ramos of flooring Salah "like a wrestler".

Sergio Ramos insists his "conscience is clear" when it comes to Mohamed Salah ahead of Spain's clash with England on Saturday.

"I never go onto the pitch with the intention of injuring another professional so I have a very clear conscience", Ramos said. "I know the English fans will treat players as they deserve and I'm not anxious in the slightest".

Ramos said that it was the job of the current squad to restore Spain to the heights that saw them triumph in three consecutive worldwide tournaments - the European championships of 2008 and 2012 and the World Cup of 2010.

Fernando Hierro was in temporary charge of 2010 World champions Spain in Russian Federation.

Spain crashed out at the round of 16 during the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation.

A former Barcelona boss, there was plenty of speculation that Enrique's appointment would spell the end of Ramos' global involvement.

Spain went on to endure a poor tournament in Russian Federation, only winning one group game before being knocked out on penalties by the hosts.

"I won't answer that question as you'll write whatever you like in your section in the newspaper, so I'll just you let you carry on in that manner", Isco said.

"Maybe both of us have very strong characters but we share the same objectives and that is the national team".

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

"He has great personality and presence. I hope we can absorb all the knowledge that he brings to the team".

Spain didn't have its best performances during the group stage of the 2018 World Cup. "Then, we will see if we can find spaces to do what we want to do".
