Mo Salah Responds To Sergio Ramos' Comments Following Champions League Clash
Remember that time Mo Salah was injured by Sergio Ramos? Of course you do because even with the World Cup starting in less than a week the story won't go away and now Salah has responded to the Spaniard.
We're in danger of remembering Mo Salah's season less for the incredible goal scoring feats and huge impression he had on getting Liverpool to the Champions League final and more for the injury he suffered in the game.
Just half an hour into the match against Real Madrid the Egyptian forward was felled by Sergio Ramos after the pair linked arms and Salah was unable to continue, leaving the pitch in pain.
The shoulder injury has put his participation in the World Cup in some doubt and it seems very unlikely he'll make Egypt's first game against Uruguay next Friday.
Ramos though has spoken since the final and said that Salah should have had a pain killing injection and got himself back on the pitch but the Liverpool forward doesn't really agree.
Speaking to Marca Salah was asked, "Ramos also pointed out that if you had an injection you could have even played the second part. Do you agree?" With Salah saying:
"My comment is that it's always okay when the one who made you cry, then makes you laugh. Maybe he could also tell me if I'm going to be ready for the World Cup?"
Salah also said he found it funny that Ramos claimed that the Egyptian was the one to grab onto the Spaniards arm first and said he never said he was okay after Ramos sent him a personal message.
The Spanish paper asked the 24 year old if he ever worried about missing the World Cup all together with Salah saying, "When I fell to the ground, I felt 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 losing the World Cup and that was a devastating thought."
Uruguay will be favourites to go through from Group A and that is likely to leave hosts Russia and Egypt to fight for the runners up spot.
In Group B it's likely that Spain will beat Portugal, Morocco and Iran to qualify for the second round as first place and that could mean Egypt and Spain meeting in the last 16, that could be tasty.
Hopefully Salah will be back on top form in Russia.
