Spain and Real Madrid's captain, Sergio Ramos, took part in a press conference ahead of his country's match against Malta tomorrow in Cadiz. He offered his opinion on a variety of hot topics in Spanish football at the moment.
The date and time of El Clasico
"The only ones who are at a disadvantage are us. It's a shame it wasn't played on the scheduled date. But there's still time to change the timetable so both teams play on the Saturday (before). If that can't happen, we'll still go with the same mentality of winning that match."
Spanish Super Cup in Saudi Arabia
"We aren't the best people to decide these types of things. The host is definitive. The players can't change anything in that regard. Everything which tries to change something and takes advantage of sport to do that is splendid. If it serves to change the country, we'll feel proud. But we don't decide."
Bale's commitment to Real Madrid
"Anything that is said could be used as a headline to create things which aren't positive. Zidane made it very clear. I'm happy that he's returned to action because that means he's available for selection. Commitment is relative because everyone values things in their own way."
Retirement plans for the national team
"I won't put a date, that would be a mistake. I live in the moment. If I can extend my career, whilst I feel good, I'll continue on. We have the Euros and I'd like to be involved at the World Cup. I want to win something again with my national team. That hunger is still intact. I prefer to live more in the present, that's my only objective. We'll see what tomorrow brings."
