Real Madrid’s Ramos: La Liga conspiracy theorists ‘imagining things’

Sergio Ramos has hit out at the “noise” surrounding Real Madrid‘s title bid, saying talk of referees helping out the La Liga leaders is “imagining things.”

Ramos, 34, scored a free kick as Madrid beat Mallorca 2-0 on Wednesday to maintain their advantage over rivals Barcelona — level on 68 points, with a superior head-to-head record.

Last week, Barca’s Gerard Pique hinted officials were favouring Real Madrid in the title race before the team benefited from key decisions going their way in a win at Real Sociedad on Sunday.

“All the noise that’s being made is because we’re leaders now,” Ramos told Movistar. “When we weren’t, people didn’t talk so much. Referees and VAR are here to help… I don’t think they take any predetermined decisions. The noise needs to stop. It’s as if we should be thanking the referees for being leaders. People shouldn’t be imagining things.”
