Mohamed Salah does not blame Sergio Ramos for putting his World Cup dream in jeopardy

Posted on by KNBT

During Saturday’s Champions League Final in Kiev, Ramos was seen to hang on to the Egypt international as the pair fell to the floor in a first-half challenge which resulted in the 44-goal Reds forward being forced off with shoulder ligament damage.

It was the turning point in the game as Real’s confidence grew as Liverpool’s waned on the way to a 3-1 defeat.

But it was not the only incident involving Ramos as he also appeared to catch goalkeeper Loris Karius in the face at a corner, and his theatrics contributed to Sadio Mane’s second-half booking.

Egypt are optimistic Salah will be fit for the World Cup in three weeks and Ramos has tweeted a get well message.

“Sometimes football shows you it’s good side and other times the bad. Above all, we are fellow pros. #GetWellSoon MoSalah,” wrote Ramos.

However, a petition launched on change.org by a user named “Mohamed Salah Abdel-Hakeem” accuses Ramos of trying to “intentionally” hurt Salah, and passed the 500,000 barrier of signatures on Wednesday afternoon.

The petition says: “Uefa and Fifa should take measures against Ramos and similar players, using the video recordings of matches to keep the spirit of the game.”

Uefa confirmed on Tuesday morning that Ramos would face no punishment for the incident involving Ramos and Karius, while also adding that no other protests had been lodged regarding the challenge between Ramos and Salah.

Meanwhile, an Egyptian lawyer has filed a €1 billion lawsuit against Ramos for the challenge which injured Salah.

But Pons, who has treated Salah, says that the injury should not keep the Egyptian out of Russia 2018.

Spaniard Pons said: “Salah has not told me anything about Sergio Ramos.

“I don’t think he is angry with him. It was an accidental challenge.

“We knew that it was something serious as soon as he fell on the ground because he never complains. We feared the worst.
