Real Madrid captain, Sergio Ramos, has said they would have won more titles if Lionel Messi was not playing for Barcelona.
The Spanish defender claims Messi made Los Blancos suffer over the years.
Ramos has won four Champions League crowns and five league titles during his time at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Messi has helped Barca to 10 title triumphs and made a habit of dashing the dreams of their little rivals down the years.
Ramos told his documentary series, ‘The Legend of Sergio Ramos’: “We’ve suffered against Messi during these years.
“Perhaps if Barcelona didn’t have him, we would have won more titles.
“There was a time when we faced the best Barcelona in history. We had a great coach like (Jose) Mourinho, but it was hard for us to beat them.
“We didn’t win much and there was a lot of tension, caused by either them or by us.”
