However, Ramos has revealed that it wasn't his intention to injure the former Chelsea and Roma star in the game, adding that he feels no guilt for his actions.

"I would have liked another reception because people only remember the action of the final, and nobody remembers the death threats that my family and my children received.

"It is a very sensitive issue that people maybe take as a joke about and [that's why they] whistle in a great stadium like this.

"My conscience is very clear. I already explained [what happened], and I do not have to give more explanations.

"You never expect a reception that is not good because, as I said the other day, if these [English] fans have something good, it is that they have always been with the great players. It has not been like that, but I am very calm, with my conscience very clear in that aspect.

"As I said before, I have never tried to hurt a colleague. There are people who may have misunderstood it, but these are football things. It will not change anything in my game or in me."

David De Gea, who has come under criticism in Spain after making multiple mistakes during the World Cup, made some crucial saves from Manchester United team-mate Marcus Rashford to maintain his side's lead at Wembley.

However, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Jermain Defoe were adamant De Gea got away with an error when Danny Welbeck's goal, deep in stoppage-time, was disallowed for an apparent foul on the United 'keeper.

"He is a great goalkeeper. We have always said it," Ramos said of De Gea.

"The big games are those that mark the great players. After a World Cup with many doubts, he deserved [a performance such as this].

"He is a great goalkeeper, and today he has [had] a great game, he has made some interventions that have marked the result of the game.

"Hopefully it is also a beginning, and that will help him to gain confidence because he is a key player for us." previously reported that Egyptian lawyer Bassem Wahba was said to have filed a €1 billion law suit against Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos for his challenge on Liverpool striker Mohamed Salah in the final of the 2017/18 Champions League.

The legal practitioner is livid with the way Sergio tackled the Egypt international which ended his night in Kiev and also put Salah in serious doubt for the forthcoming 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.

Explaining his action, the attorney-at-law according to UK Sun report told Sada El-Balad channel, that he took the move so that the Real Madrid star would not go unpunished for the crime.
