New Angle Shows Mo Salah Might Have Been The One Who Grabbed Sergio Ramos
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 hurt" their No.11.
But new slowed-down footage from the tussle appears to show Salah actually grabbed Ramos' arm before inadvertently falling into the Spaniard, who carried the former Roma man down with him.
It was spun as though Ramos deliberately set out to take out Liverpool's best player in the 3-1 win in Kiev, but the above clip shows a very different perspective.

Still, Salah's teammate at the time, Dejan Lovren, was angry with what happened to his friend and has admitted he set out to exact revenge by elbowing Ramos during a game between Croatia and Spain in November 2018.
"I deliberately hit Ramos after hurting Salah? Yes, this is possible," the Zenit centre-back opened up in an interview with Egypt Today.
"I do not want to make a big story, but I think that what Ramos did was intentional to injure my friend, so it was time to pay for what he has done.
"Luka Modric tried to reduce the tension between me and Ramos, and we were facing Spain together with the Croatian national team, and I deliberately hit him with my elbows and told him that we have drawn now.
"I respect Ramos as a player and what he does for his team. He has won a lot of titles, but on the other hand, he does some behaviour that I do not like and harm the players."
When asked how Salah reacted to the elbow Lovren replied: "I will not tell you [what he said], but he laughed."
