The defensive pair have a long-time rivalry between their respective clubs, but Barcelona holding midfielder Sergio Busquets believes that has no effect in the national team.
“They are many years with the national team, Ramos and Pique and the atmosphere is good,” Busquets told El Partidazo. “The good vibe is magnificent.
“Here, Sergio is the captain and has more hierarchy and, at Barca, Gerard has more of a leadership role.”
“There has to be everything, but above all respect,” Busquets added. “Sometimes you cross the barrier of respect for many things – because you do not want to let the rival be, for being the eternal rival.
