Roberto Firmino has hit back at Sergio Ramos over the Real Madrid man's "idiotic" remarks about the Champions League final injuries to Liverpool team-mates Mohamed Salah and Loris Karius.
Salah was forced off with a shoulder issue in Kiev after a challenge with Ramos, while it has emerged that keeper Karius - whose errors led to two Real goals in Los Blancos' 3-1 win - may have suffered concussion in a collision with the defender.
Ramos defends himself against criticism
But on Tuesday an unrepentant Ramos defended himself against the criticism he has received over his role in the injuries, saying: "Bloody hell, they've given this a lot of attention, the Salah thing... I didn't want to speak because everything is magnified.
"I see the play well, he grabs my arm first and I fell to the other side, the injury happened to the other arm and they said that I gave him a judo hold. After, the goalkeeper said that I dazed him.
"I am only missing Firmino saying that he got a cold because a drop of my sweat landed on him..."
"It's an idiotic thing of him to say"
Speaking on international duty with Brazil on Wednesday, Firmino replied: "I prefer not to talk about it. It's OK, [Ramos] is a champion. But I think it's an idiotic thing of him to say."
