The Blancos legend was seen rejecting a fan’s request to sign his Real Madrid jersey.

Sergio Ramos has hit back after being criticised for refusing to sign a Real Madrid shirt.

The Spanish centre-back is considered a club legend at Real Madrid, where he won four Champions League titles and four La Liga trophies.

Some Real Madrid supporters, however, slammed Ramos for not signing the club’s jersey in a recent meet-and-greet with fans. The centre-back was seen signing Paris Saint-Germain and Sevilla shirts but not those of Real Madrid.

Ramos quoted the video in a tweet on Saturday, writing“Before that moment I had already signed about six Real Madrid shirts, and then there are people who auction them or sell them on the Internet.”

Ramos returned to La Liga with a surprise move back to Sevilla in the summer transfer window. Following an underwhelming spell at PSG, the centre-back has enjoyed excellent form and fitness this season.

The World Cup winner is not the first player to be frustrated with fans selling his signature online. Earlier this year, Joao Cancelo was enraged by being repeatedly approached by a group of Barcelona fans.

“They asks for autographs on stickers or shirts and sell them later,” the Portugal international said on Instagram“And this is repeated every day, and always by the same people. There are people who don’t know how to respect each other’s space.”
