The Real Madrid captain spoke to the press ahead of the FIFA Club World Cup final against Al Ain and Isco, Cristiano and Mourinho were all discussed.

Sergio Ramos spoke to the press ahead of Real Madrid's Club World Cup final against Al Ain on Saturday in Abu Dhabi.

Cristiano's statements: "This is a wave that you have to know how to manage, but we didn't listen to him speak badly about Madrid once. The time he was here has seen the humility of this group and that was our success. We wish Cris the best."

Isco on the margins: "No, he is another player. The good thing that Madrid has is the competition. There are players like Ceballos who didn't have many minutes last year and this year yes. The demand level is at the maximum at Madrid and the final decision is made by the manager for small details because there is a very high level in this squad."

Would you like to see Mourinho managing Real Madrid? "I am not the one to decide who I want to manage. The captains don't have that level of decision. We have spent the last five years without Mou but he is a personality who sells a lot....You have to respect Solari and everyone who has trained since him."

Strict managers: "What I said was that in life in general you can't impose respect, you have to win it. Nobody refuses to do anything, we always have that inclination. We have trainers of all kinds. I don't have problems with what the manager wants."
