Cesc Fabregas has hit back at Sergio Ramos after the Real Madrid man appeared to question his commitment to the national team.
Ramos was quoted by the media last week suggesting the Chelsea midfielder and his club team mate Diego Costa put the Blues first rather than La Roja after they pulled out of the international duty through injury. The appeared for the Stamford Bridge side just days later as Jose Mourinho’s men beat West Brom to put daylight between them and the chasing pack in the Premier League.
The former Madrid boss has already hit back at Ramos, and Fabregas, who counts Arsenal and Barcelona among his former clubs, told Cadena Cope that he was angry about Ramos’ remarks.
“Yes, I felt that I was the one being alluded to and I already told Sergio what I thought. We spoke by telephone and everything is fine. It pisses you off when your commitment is questioned, of course it pisses you off,” he said.
And he added: “There have been a lot of matches and training camps I have turned up for without playing. I have made 94 appearances for Spain and for nine years I have always come, always. And with a smile from ear to ear.
“I said to Ramos he can call me on the telephone and say it to my face. I told him we have been playing together since the Under-21s and there is no need to send messages in the media.”
