Sergio Ramos drops the Copa del Rey
April 21st, 2011 4:52PM

TAGS:  spain, video


[VIDEO PICK] Real Madrid star Sergio Ramos did a better job of handling the Barcelona attack that he did the Copa del Rey trophy. In early-morning celebrations following their 1-0 win over Barcelona, Real Madrid players were bused to central Madrid's Cibeles Square, where Ramos let the 33-pound trophy slip from his hands. It broke into at least 10 pieces when it fell under the bus.

"It fell, it fell, it's fine, it's fine," Ramos insisted when talking with reporte rs about the incident.

The cup was not shown again, however.

    Apparently Sergio thinks the Cup is fine in Ten Pieces.

    When you watch the video you see that not only did Sergio drop the trophy, but then the bus runs over it. I am amazed if it is only in ten pieces. But that's OK, according to Sergio the Cup is fine. That is good enough for me.

    Make one wonder if the trophy would have fared better with Barca?
