Sergio Ramos: I did not talk to Mourinho
Sergio Ramos has admitted he did not speak to Jose Mourinho before or after Real Madrid's 3-1 International Champions Cup final win over Chelsea on Wednesday.
The Spain international maintained a troubled relationship with the Portuguese coach during the latter's three-year reign at the Santiago Bernabeu side and, even though he insists he does not feel any resentment towards Mourinho, Ramos was in no mood to catch up with his former boss.
"I didn't talk to Mourinho. Others said hello to him; I have no feelings of resentment towards him, like I've always said: resentment is for losers, and that's not something we do here," Ramos told reporters.
"The drama, the controversy was stirred by the press. We have the maximum amount of respect for Chelsea as we have for every one of our opponents.
"It doesn't matter if Mourinho is coaching them, it doesn't matter if it's Chelsea."
Mourinho guided Madrid to one La Liga title and one Copa del Rey trophy, but left the club this summer after a disappointing 2012-13 campaign.
