Sergio Ramos took his frustration out on Real Madrid rookie Sergio Reguilon twice kicking the ball at him in a heated training exchange on Monday.

Ramos is clearly feeling the strain and it showed in the final session before the team face Viktoria Pilsen at the Santiago Bernabeu on Tuesday.

Lopetegui had designed a light-hearted start to training with the players playing a two-sided game of handball at the Valdebebas Sports City. The aim of the game was to kick or head goals through holes in a canvas sheet spread over one of the goals.
Ramos lost his temper with 21-year-old Reguilon who is the team’s young left-back fresh from Real Madrid’s B-team ‘Castilla’. The homegrown talent who made his Champions League debut in Moscow three weeks ago when Real Madrid were beaten by CSKA launched himself at Ramos during the game and caught him inadvertently in the face.
Ramos reacted by twice kicking the ball towards the young defender, holding his nose, and waving his arms at Reguilon.

After the session he apologised on social media tweeting: ‘Although it doesn’t seem like it, these things happen often, but it is not an excuse, my reaction should not be like that. We always go full isn’t that right Regui? In the end we won on the same side. File closed and on to tomorrow’s game.’
Real Madrid captain Ramos is understood to be one of those backing coach Lopetegui as he clings to his job. Having enjoyed working with him at international level he is one of those put forward the suggestion that he should replace Zinedine Zidane last summer.
Ramos had a brief meeting with Real Madrid president Florentino Perez after Saturday’s 2-1 defeat to Levante that left Madrid in seventh place in La Liga. His team-mate Isco publicly backed Lopetegui on Monday saying: ‘If you sack him you should sack us all because we are all responsible for the situation.’
