Mourinho and Ramos had several run-ins as player and coach at Real Madrid, with the Spaniard reportedly one of the key architects of Mourinho's downfall - and departure - at the Bernabeu.

Ramos also spoke about his near move to United back in 2015, adding: "There was an opportunity in the past".

"I think they had a period of dominance in the middle of the first half".

"He is just one of many coaches in my footballing career. This is not a Mourinho vs. Sergio Ramos - nothing like it". Mourinho maintains to this day that he had to beg to get out of his contract and return to Chelsea because, as he claims, everyone wanted him to stay.

Real have since gone on to clinch three Champions League titles, two of them under Zinedine Zidane, and Ramos believes the current manager - a former player - is a ideal fit ahead of Tuesday's Super Cup final in Skopje.

"My view is that when a team has a coach it changes, every coach is different because if his system, tactics, and personality", said the Spain and Madrid captain, taking an initially diplomatic tone.

"How to manage the dressing room..." Zidane is good at understanding our dressing room.

"Cristiano was always positive, has a lot of experience and always makes the difference". Each one is different, neither better nor worse. I believe both are great coaches. 'It resolved itself in a different way.

"I see Real Madrid as what it is: a great club, the champion of Europe, and it's a great motivation for us, "This is a new Manchester United, a new generation of footballers".

'I think they could score more goals than they did, and we could score more goals than we did.
