Roberto Firmino has described Sergio Ramos as "an idiot" for his comments following the Champions League final.
The Real Madrid captain criticised Loris Karius, Mohamed Salah and Firmino himself in the days after the match which Real won 3-1 to secure a third successive Champions League crown.
Ramos said Salah instigated the tussle between the players which led to the Egyptian forward being forced off with a shoulder injury during the first half and that he could have played on.

He then said: "I am only missing Roberto Firmino saying he got a cold because a drop of my sweat landed on him."
But speaking ahead of Brazil's game against Austria on Sunday, Firmino responded, saying: "I prefer not to make any comments.
"I think he has a view because he was the champion but I thought he was an idiot for what he said but that's okay."
