Salah fires back at Ramos

Egypt and Liverpool ace Mohamed Salah fired back at the Real Madrid's Sergio Ramos after Ramos's latest comments regarding the injury he sustained during the Champions League final.

The Liverpool man was forced off after just 31 minutes against Madrid, following a clash with Ramos, and he is now in a race against time to be fit for Egypt's World Cup campaign.

Ramos spoke to the press last week, and claimed that he did nothing wrong in the build up to the Reds star's injury, as quoted by the Express:

“Bloody hell, they’ve given this a lot of attention, the Salah thing … I didn’t want to speak because everything is magnified. I see the play as it is. He grabbed 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 the goalkeeper said that I dazed him with a clash with me I am only missing Firmino saying that he got a cold because a drop of my sweat!”

Spain’s captain also declared: “If he had an injection, he could’ve played the second half.”

However, Salah stated that he did not respond by reassuring or forgiving his opponent.

“Yes, it was [the worst moment of my career],” he declared when asked about having to be substituted in the final.

"When I fell to the ground, I had 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 not playing in the World Cup and that was a devastating thought."

“It’s funny...” continued Salah. “My comment is that it’s always okay when the one who made you cry first, then makes you laugh.

“Maybe he could also tell me if I’m going to be ready for the World Cup?”

On the messages exchanged between the pair, Mo Salah simply said: “He sent me a message, but I never told him it was okay.”

It is an argument that will likely continue to rumble on, however, and could come to a head if the pair meet again during the World Cup in Russia this summer.
