Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos has responded to Arrigo Sacchi’s claims that the delay over a contract extension at the club are because of money.
The former Italian manager told La Gazzetta dello Sport that Ramos had sought him out for advice on a recent visit to Valdebebas. According to Sacchi, Ramos told him he was concerned about signing a new deal with the 10-time Champions League winners because he knew club president Florentino Perez would offer less money.
“With all the love and respect to Sacchi, I’m not worried about my renewal. I’ve never been driven by money,” he replied. “The happiness of myself and my family is above everything.”
