Fan Fails With Selfie After Putting His Hand On Mo Salah's Injured Shoulder
Mo Salah's shoulder might be the most talked about body part in recent memory so you'd have thought everyone would be aware of it, especially one of his biggest fans, but apparently not for one fan desperate to get a good selfie with him.
The incident with Sergio Ramos at the Champions League final that resulted in Mo Salah's shoulder injury is my Philippe Coutinho for the summer of 2018, I've written about it more times than I care to think about.
Of course Salah's injury now hangs a huge shadow over the World Cup because we all want to see the best players at the biggest tournament.
The Liverpool forward should have the chance to light up a Group A that is rather lacking in star power outside of Uruguay's strikeforce of Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani.
He has a race to be fit in time for Egypt's opener, and their first World Cup game since 1990, on Friday against the South Americans and he has claimed he'll be fit.
However he could probably still do without people putting pressure on his shoulder, exactly what one poor fan who just wanted to grab a selfie with him did. The look of discomfort on the player's face says everything:
The poor guy trying to get a picture with his hero is quickly dealt with by security and no one looks particularly happy with him, in the end it barely looks like he gets the picture.
More importantly though is Salah. The 25 year old looks extremely uncomfortable at the slightest touch and would be pretty vulnerable in a match if the video is anything to go by.
Sure he's got another few days and will no doubt be having some good treatment but that's not looking good right now.
Egypt, in their first tournament for nearly 30 years, open up against Uruguay before playing potentially their most important game against hosts Russia, finally finishing against Saudi Arabia.
Salah has scored 33 times in 57 appearances for his country including the penalty that took them to Russia.
Now we just hope he's fit for Friday, he can start by avoiding selfies!
