'Mo Salah Isn't Going To Get Close To Sergio Ramos' When Liverpool Play Real Madrid

"Mo Salah isn't going to get close to Sergio Ramos", Roberto Carlos has joked after Liverpool and Real Madrid were drawn against one another in the Champions League quarter finals.

In the first half of the Champions League final in 2018, Salah was forced off in tears with a shoulder injury after a collision with the Real skipper.

Ramos received a whole lot of backlash for the challenge from Liverpool fans, with a petition set up calling for him to be punished for "intentionally hurting" their No.11 in Real's 3-1 win in Kiev.

The pair haven't shared a pitch since and Real legend Carlos joked that Salah won't be going anywhere near Ramos when they play twice next month.

"Salah isn't even going to get close to Sergio," Carlos said, as per Marca.

"It will be an action that will be talked about a lot."

Discussing the tie in general, Carlos feels confident that the 13-time European Cup winners can progress to the semi-finals - where they would play Porto or Chelsea.

"We're going to play against a good team," he added.

"The first game is at home, Real Madrid's moment is great and they must decide the tie at home.

"The important thing is that Zidane has all his players ready, that they come back as quickly as possible. It's easy for him to be a coach here because he has the best at his disposal.

"If a game doesn't go well, he has eight players of the highest level waiting to play."

Salah and Ramos were in the same vicinity a few months after the incident when the Spaniard was sat directly behind the former Roma man at the Champions League draw.

At the time, Ramos said that Salah was the one who grabbed him and claims he could have played on in the crunch clash.

"Bloody hell, they have given this Salah thing a lot of attention," he told AS.

"I didn't want to speak because everything is magnified. I see the play well, he grabs my arm first and I fell to the other side, the injury happened to the other arm and they said that I gave him a judo hold. After that the goalkeeper said I dazed him with a clash.

"I spoke with Salah through messages, he was quite good. He could have played if he got an injection for the second half, I have done it sometimes but when Ramos does something like this, it sticks a little bit more."
