Judo Union Brands Sergio Ramos' Throw As 'Dangerous' And Explain Why It's Not Allowed In Judo
Everyone has had their say on Sergio Ramos' foul on Mohamed Salah. And the European Judo Union have now chipped in.
One of the main takeaways from the Champions League final was the Real Madrid skipper throwing Salah to the ground, who landed awkwardly on his arm/shoulder.
He was replaced, leaving the field in tears in heartbreaking scenes.
A few days removed from Saturday's showpiece, an Egyptian lawyer is plotting legal action against Ramos.
According to GOAL, the lawyer, who reportedly goes by the name of Bassem Wahba, has launched a €1 billion (!!) lawsuit against him.
Sergio Ramos is now being sued for a staggering €1 Billion after injuring Mo Salah :flushed:

Ramos is not only being called out by lawyers but also the European Judo Union.
EJU explain how Ramos' arm-lock is an illegal and dangerous move in Judo by posting the following Tweet:
They have uploaded a picture of Ramos and Salah tangling accompanied with the words: "Waki-gatame is a dangerous technique. That's why it is not allowed in Judo to use for transition to ne-waza. What do you think about this foul yesterday evening in the #UCLFinal between #RMALIV?"

Don't be trying that in Judo, guys.
Following the shoulder injury, his World Cup participation is in serious doubt.
Though while the Egyptian FA are positive about his fitness, it appears Liverpool's physio isn't as hopeful.
Club physiotherapist Ruben Pons is anticipating a period of "three to four weeks" out before he returns to action. That means he'll miss the entire Group Stage, and will only feature in Russia if Egypt secure a spot in the knockout rounds.
Egypt are in Group A alongside tournament hosts Russia, as well as Uruguay and Saudi Arabia.
