​Real Madrid skipper Sergio Ramos is without doubt one of the best defenders in the history of football, though there are many who dislike him for his antics on the field, with the Spaniard known to give everything in order to win.

Ramos was at it again in what was his 600th appearances for the Los Blancos, with the defender picking up a yellow card after clattering into Ajax strike Kasper Dolberg in the 87th minute, which was the 38th time in the competition that he has been booked.

Going into the tie, he was one yellow card away from a European suspension and now former Arsenal legend Martin Keown has claimed that the Spaniard committed the foul on purpose in order to get booked.

This means that while he will miss the second leg, his accumulation of yellow cards will be swiped out in time for the quarter-finals. His actions led to some discussion on social networking site Twitter, with some fans criticising him, while some lauded his intelligence.
