Real Madrid captain has been hit by an angry backlash after his challenge on that left the star injured.

Salah was forced off the field only 30 minutes into the UEFA Champions League final after a heavy challenge from Ramos. The 32-year-old defender hooked the Egypt international by the arm and the latter landed on his left shoulder before leaving the field in tears to be replaced by Adam Lallana.

Salah’s injury put his hopes of playing for Egypt at the World Cup in less than a month in jeopardy. Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp said in a post-match press conference that Salah’s injury looks serious. However, the Pharaohs’ national team doctor said he’s optimistic that the Egypt international will be able to make it to the World Cup, set to kick off mid-June.

    From football to wrestling. I really believe this was planned and cruel attack on M Salah. Ramos is a criminal.

    Ramos has been doing the same for the last 5 years. There are a lot of videos of how Ramos try to “stop” Messi. UEFA has to stop football violence.

    It’s such a shame that Salah was not able to finish the Champions League Final. He is so much fun to watch and in my humble opinion is that best player on the plant now! That’s why Ramos resorted to dirty play to stop the best player. He has no integrity and should be punished for his actions.
