Mohamed Salah’s injury during the UEFA Champions League final this year was unfortunate. Liverpool and Egypt fans waited with bated breath after their hero was writhing with pain on the ground.
Salah was forced off the field and immediately reports followed that Salah could be ruled out of the World Cup.
And all the blame was put on Sergio Ramos, who according to a lot of fans had intentionally brought down Mohamed Salah.
Ever since that incident, Ramos has been subject to a lot of criticism for his tackle and his apparent intention of knowingly hurting Salah.
Ramos took a constant decision of not responding to the comments and the hate but after recent reports of Karius having suffered concussion because of a ‘Ramos elbow’, the Real Madrid captain decided to address the media about the entire incident.
Ramos felt that media and the fans had made a huge hooplah around the incident when in reality it was just a foul that resulted in a bad injury for the player.
“F**king hell, they’ve given this a lot of attention, the Salah thing.
“I didn’t want to speak because everything is magnified. I see the play well, he grabs my arm first and I fell to the other side, the injury happened to the other arm and they said that I gave him a judo hold.
“After the goalkeeper said that I dazed him with a clash with me I am only missing Firmino saying that he got a cold because a drop of my sweat.
“I spoke with Salah through messages he was quite good. He could have played if he got an injection for the second half, I have done it sometimes but when Ramos does something like this, it sticks a little bit more.
“I don’t know if it’s because you’re at Madrid for so long and win for so long that people look at it a different way.” Ramos said.
Salah has been included in Egypt’s squad for the World Cup and if reports are to be believed he should be 100% fit for Egypt’s second group game.
