Mohamed Salah responds to Sergio Ramos’ comments on tough duel
Egypt international and Liverpool winger Mohamed Salah responded to comments made by Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos discussing a challenge between the two players that resulted in a shoulder injury forcing Salah off the pitch.
The Spain defender maintained that the talk about malicious intentions against Salah was exaggerated and that he could have continued the game had he received an injection.
Salah gave an update about his injury and replied justifications made by Ramos in a recent interview with Spanish outlet Marca, stating that the incident was the worst moment of his career so far.
“Now I’m better. I hope to play the first game against Uruguay, but that will depend on how I feel when it approaches,” he said about his injury.
After days of rumors and speculations it has been confirmed that the Egyptian King will be heading with the rest of the Pharaohs to the World Cup, but there is a huge possibility he might miss the opening game against Uruguay.
“When I fell to the ground, I had a mixture of physical pain and a lot of worry. Also anger and sadness for not being able to continue playing the Champions League final. Moments later, I also thought about the possibility of not playing in the World Cup and that was a devastating thought,” he said.
In his defense, Sergio Ramos said that Salah grabbed his arm first and that he fell to the other side, while the injury happened to Salah’s other arm. Salah labeled his justification as a funny one.
The Real Madrid captain also claimed that the Egyptian winger could have continued the game if he had an injection.
“My comment is that it’s always okay when the one who made you cry first, then makes you laugh. Maybe he could also tell me if I’m going to be ready for the World Cup?”
Despite that Liverpool’s physiotherapist Rubén Pons claimed the 25-year-old player told him that he holds no bitterness towards Ramos, Salah assured that he received a message from Ramos, “but I never told him it was okay.”
