Cold shoulder! Sergio Ramos unleashes attack on youth player after flying shoulder in nose (VIDEO)
In a last ditch block attempt, Reguilón dived through the air in front of the center back, accidentally catching him on the nose with a stray shoulder, much to the chagrin of Ramos, who appeared to immediately hold his damaged conk.

Then in a flash of anger, Ramos fired a kick at the 21-year-old left back, but the ball went flying high and wide of the young player.
Not content with his outburst, and as the squad were making their way off the pitch, Ramos, holding his nose and wagging his finger at the youngster, again fired the ball at a bemused-looking Reguilón.
Not surprisingly, the internet was quick to come crashing down on one of the most love-to-hate villains in world football, some hinting that frustration's at Real's disappointing start to the season could be the real reason for Ramos' eruption.

Sergio Ramos as captain of the biggest football club in the world, simply cannot behave the way he did today. As leader of the team and hero to many kids and even adults around the world what he did today was extremely poor! Ramos should be ashamed of himself!!— Marco Zatta (@Marco_Zatta_101) October 22, 2018

Ramos was blamed by many football fans for injuring Liverpool's Mo Salah after the latter dislocated his shoulder in a tussle with the defender during the 2018 Champions League final in Kiev in May
All seemed to thaw out between the pair on Twitter; Ramos tweeted a group photo including himself and Reguilón with the caption: "Although it does not seem, [these] are quite common situations, but no excuse, my reaction should not be that. We always go to full, don't we, Regui? At the end of the team victory together. Shelve and for tomorrow's game."
Aunque no os lo parezca, son situaciones bastante habituales, pero no es excusa, mi reacción no debió ser esa.Nosotros siempre vamos a full, ¿verdad, Regui? ¡¡Al final victoria del equipo juntos @sergio_regui!! 😜🤥😜🤥Carpetazo 📂 y a por el partido de mañana.#HalaMadridpic.twitter.com/PIFNFqV6mj— Sergio Ramos (@SergioRamos) October 22, 2018
Siempre con mi equipo y con mi capitán, a por la victoria mañana! 💪🏻 https://t.co/Nddgmwd7ob— Sergio Reguilón (@sergio_regui) October 22, 2018
Reguilón accepted the apology, tweeting in response: "Always with my team and my captain, for the victory tomorrow!"
The Spanish side and defending European champions go into the match at Santiago Bernabeu having lost their previous match 1-0 against CSKA Moscow in the Russian capital. They currently sit 7th in La Liga after nine games played.
