Iniesta: Ramos pays tribute to Barcelona great after Clásico
The latest tribute for Andrés Iniesta came from a perhaps unlikely source in Real Madrid man Sergio Ramos, who heralded "Iniesta's Clásico".
Sergio Ramos set aside Real Madrid's rivalry with Barcelona to pay tribute to departing Blaugrana great Andrés Iniesta after his last Clásico.
Iniesta captained Barça for the last time against Madrid in Sunday's contentious clash, the sides drawing 2-2 after Sergi Roberto was sent off late in the first half.
"You will be missed, my friend"
And while both teams had reasons for frustration at full-time, Madrid skipper Ramos still found time to laud opposite number Iniesta, an international team-mate with Spain.
"Beyond what happened on the pitch, last night's match will be remembered as Iniesta's Clásico," Ramos posted on Twitter on Monday, alongside a picture of him holding the midfielder's shirt. "You will be missed, my friend."
Más allá de lo sucedido en el terreno de juego, el de ayer será recordado como el #Clásico de @andresiniesta8, un clásico de verdad. Se te echará de menos, amigo— Sergio Ramos (@SergioRamos) May 7, 2018

Iniesta in frame for move to China
Iniesta is expected to head to the Chinese Super League at the end of the season, but for now his focus remains on helping champions Barça to end this LaLiga season undefeated.
