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.
He certainly wasn't afraid of going face to face with the defender - something you rarely see when Ramos plays.
Check out the swipe Dembele produced on Ramos, just moments after he squared up to the Spaniard.
Dembele and Ramos' spat picked up plenty of reaction on social media at the time, and it recently received traction after he injured Mohamed Salah in the Champions League final.
Here are some of those from Twitter:

Dembele definitely knew what he was doing there on Ramos - very lucky to just be yellow. Ramos cant believe it.- Dermot Corrigan (@dermotmcorrigan) November 1, 2017
Thoughts on Ramos' legacy in the game? Will he go down as one of the greatest defenders of all time?
