Liverpool physiotherapist reveals Salah’s status post injury in Champions League final
Salah had sustained an unfortunate tough shoulder injury during a duel between him and Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos during the Champions League final between Liverpool and Los Merengues, the game which saw Real Madrid lift their 13th major European silverware after a 3-1 victory.
Fears that Salah’s injury might be severe that it costs him the opportunity to represent Egypt in the World Cup float on the surface, but medical tests proved that the Premier League Player of the Year will need three weeks to recover which allows him to catch the showpiece event, with Salah set for rehabilitation process in Spain.
“We knew that it was something serious as soon as he [Salah] fell on the ground because he never complains, we were afraid of the worst,” Pons told Marca.
“We were in the field until the break, I was devastated, I tried to transmit calmness, I told him that nothing could be done and that he did not worry too much, it was time to look for solutions and not to regret because things did not work.”
Pons said that he went to hospital along with Salah during half-time and explained that the Egypt international shifted his entire focus on recovering for the World Cup once they got a clearer picture on the type of his shoulder injury, affirming that they he intends to recover as quickly as possible.
“[At the hospital] We were watching the game, we were looking at social networks and the security was telling us the result, Madrid has scored, we equalised. When we came back, the game was over, the whole team had changed and prepared for riding the team bus, we helped him change because he could not do it alone and we went to the airport.”
“Once we knew the injury we planned the treatment, he is sad about what happened but he is totally focused on recovery and seeing when he can be ready. He is going to mark the recovery times, in principle it will be from three to four weeks but we are going to try to reduce those deadlines, that’s the big goal.”
