Watch: Luis Enrique Greeting Sergio Ramos Is Brilliant

One might have thought there could still have been bad blood between Luis Enrique and Sergio Ramos due to the Barcelona and Real Madrid but it seem as though the pair have the makings of a productive manager-captain relationship.

In a clip that is doing the rounds, 'Lucho' gave the La Roja skipper a special greeting when they linked up for the first time ahead of UEFA Nations League games against England and Croatia.


Players like Dani Carvajal and Marcos Asensio got a handshake and embrace straight off the bat after shaking hands with other members of staff, with Enrique in the middle of the lounge area.

When Ramos came over, he had warm welcomes of a slew of the coaching team but former Barcelona manager Enrique wasn't there for the greeting straight away.

So when he came from behind, he decided to bump into Mo Salah's least favourite person - giving him a little shock at first before the two shared an embrace and had a brief chat. It was a very funny moment indeed.

The Barca-Real divide has caused a few problems in Spain's camp over the years but Ramos had nothing but kind words to describe his new boss after spending time with him.

"I didn't know Luis Enrique personally before now, but the first contact has been positive regardless of the speculation that may have existed," he said in a press conference.

"A certain part of the press has tried to divide us because we are two people with a lot of character. We both have the same objective and before judging someone I like to meet them for myself in person.

"I only have good things to say about him. I'd like to retire some day and say that I was a starter with all of the coaches I have had."

On Saturday, Ramos captained Spain to a 2-1 victory over England at Wembley in Enrique's first game in charge. They host World Cup finalists Croatia on Tuesday and look to make it two wins out of two.
