When Mousa Dembele Showed Everyone How To Deal With Sergio Ramos Properly

Sergio Ramos has been criticised in recent days for his challenge on Mohamed Salah, but you cannot deny his immense will to win.

You might even say the Real Madrid captain was born a winner.

If you judge his career on trophies and medals, he will, without doubt, go down as one of the great leaders in world football.

So how do you deal with such a player? Well, you might want to ask Tottenham midfielder Mousa Dembele.

Ramos tried his very best to get under the skin of Dembele during Spurs' outstanding 3-1 win over Los Blancos at Wembley last year, but the Belgian got one over his opponent with a flurry of no nonsense tackles.

Mauricio Pochettino's side were far superior to the defending Champions League holders, with Dele Alli bagging a brace and Christian Eriksen getting on the scoresheet.

But Dembele and Ramos' battle grabbed the headlines.
