took the decision well.

“I have to take the opportunity to thank Bernd Schuster for the work he did at Real Madrid. He did an excellent job last season to win the title and the Spanish Supercopa.”

Madrid have been rocked by poor performances and problems behind the scenes in recent weeksandmorale hit a new low on Sunday when the champions were beaten at home by Sevilla after coming back from two goals down.

Instead of issuing a rallying cry, Schuster attempted to play some unconvincing mind games and stated that his team would not be able to win ‘el Clasico’ this weekend at Camp Nou, a game that can be seen live on Sky Sports 1.

Ramos has been out of football since being sacked by Spurs in October and while his work may not have been appreciated in North London, his stock in Spain is still high.

The Spanish giants have initially handed Ramos a six-month deal.
