Rafael Benitez: I haven’t banned Sergio Ramos from drinking beer at Real Madrid

Real Madrid coach Rafael Benitez has rubbished several claims about his management at the club, including a report that he banned Sergio Ramos from drinking beer.

Benitez was frustrated about some of the reports which have been published regarding his style of management and relationships with some of the players, including Ramos.

Real Madrid are top of La Liga table, unbeaten after nine games, and Benitez said the stories about him have been “ridiculous”.

” I’ve read that Benitez measures the amount of olive oil in the salads, or that Benitez banned Sergio Ramos from drinking beer, that was another ridiculous story doing the rounds,” Benitez told Radio Nacional.

“Around my friends I act exactly the way I always have.”

Benitez’s side have only conceded three goals in nine games in the league this season so he has been left perplexed as to why negative stories have emerged about him and his team.

“I’m surprised that despite all the good things happening, people have to focus on the bits we’re not doing so well,” he added.

“I always say the same things to the Madridistas. We know where we want to be and we don’t want to veer off that path.

“We listen to voices outside the club but I have a team that advises me and keeps me focussed on our goals.”
