Real Madrid have suffered because of Messi - Messi
Sergio Ramos believes that Barca without Messi would have brought more glories to Los Blancos.
Sergio Ramos has admitted that Lionel Messi is the obstacle behind Real Madrid’s lack of numerous successes during his time with Los Blancos.
The Spanish captain believes Messi has haunted his club side a lot and if Barcelona were without him, achievements would have been immeasurable.
Ramos has won four Champions League titles since joining Real Madrid from Sevilla in 2005 and five Lal Liga titles, half of what Messi has won with Barcelona.
He told in his documentary series 'The Legend of Sergio Ramos' that Madrid have suffered because of the one in football, Lionel Messi.
"We've suffered against Messi during these years," Ramos said in his documentary series 'The Legend of Sergio Ramos'.
"Perhaps if Barcelona didn't have him, we would have won more titles.
"There was a time when we faced the best Barcelona in history. We had a great coach like [Jose] Mourinho, but it was hard for us to beat them.
"We didn't win much and there was a lot of tension, caused by either them or by us."
Real Madrid will host Barcelona on Saturday, April 10, 2021, at the Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano. Their first meeting in the current league ended 3-1 in favour of Los Blancos at the Camp Nou.
