Days after Sergio Ramos’ departure from Real Madrid, which marked an end to a 16-year-long stint at the Los Blancos, the defender stumbled upon a rare encounter on social media.
Challenging Ramos was none other than Brazilian and former Barcelona footballer Ronaldinho, who tried to remind the defender of a sight from globe’s most-anticipated footballing fixture the El Clasico.
After clashing on the field in past and this was probably the first time the action shifted to the virtual world.
Ronaldinho was the one, who began the banter, by sharing an old picture of him tussling in the field with the Spaniard from a Clasico encounter.

Ramos was quick to respond to Ronaldinho’s poke against him and responded back with a photo, showing Madrid players celebrating La Liga title triumph.
