Sergio Ramos admits how Messi hampered Real Madrid's success


Real Madrid CF and FC Barcelona have been embroiled in a bitter rivalry for almost as long as both clubs have been in existence. However, Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos believes that his team would have enjoyed a great deal more success if the Catalans did not have the services of Lionel Messi.

Both Ramos and Messi have been enjoying lengthy careers at their respective clubs and Ramos thinks that the Barcelona captain has been a major hindrance to his side winning more titles. Since joining Real Madrid from Sevilla in 2005, Ramos has won four Champions League trophies. The success in Europe has been incomparable, but things are very different domestically.
