C. Ronaldo Goals That Made Midfielders Needless
Los Blancos have struggled this season without the former Manchester United star but are still favourites to win in Abu Dhabi.
But Ramos believes the mentality for Real Madrid doesn’t change even without Ronaldo.
“I think on the pitch there won’t be much difference [to previous years], despite the absence of Cristiano Ronaldo, who was a key player for us, but we’re going to compete with the club’s same philosophy as always: to win,” Ramos said.
“We have good memories in this competition, because we’ve had success in the past.
“It’s a short competition and there’s no room for mistakes.
“There’s a semifinal and then the final… and we want to take the cup home to Madrid.”
Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes recently revealed that his client wanted to leave Real Madrid in January.
“He is the best player in the history of the game, so a lot of teams wanted him,” Mendes said
