Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos was jeered by Abu Dhabi fans during their Club World Cup final triumph over Al Ain.
Real won 4-1, though Ramos was jeered when in possession by the home crowd.
Local fans haven’t forgotten the incident in the Champions League final in which he brought Liverpool’s Egyptian striker Mohamed Salah’s night to an early end.
It was surprising given that the local supporters hadn’t shown any animosity towards him on Wednesday during Real Madrid’s first game against Kashima Antlers.
While it is the case that in the final it is the local team who are Real Madrid’s opponents, it was only the Spanish stopper who was singled out for rough treatment.
