Salah responds to Ramos challenge

It is two weeks since the Champions League final, but still the fallout from the drama in Kiev rumbles on.

Whether it be Loris Karius, Gareth Bale, Mo Salah or Sergio Ramos, there were certainly plenty of talking points and plenty of protagonists as Real Madrid claimed their 13th European crown at the expense of Liverpool.

One of the key talking points was Sergio Ramos’ first half challenge on Mohamed Salah, which saw the Egyptian’s game ended prematurely and putting his chances of featuring in this summer’s World Cup in jeopardy.

Real Madrid skipper Ramos has been accused of making sure the Liverpool ace was injured by performing a martial arts style move on Salah, something which the Spaniard of course denies.

And asked if he believed the claims, Salah told Marca: “I do not know. Maybe?

“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 losing the World Cup and that was a devastating thought.

“I’m better now. I hope to play the first game against Uruguay, but that will depend on how I feel when the match is approaching.”

Ramos also suggested that Salah could have carried on in the final if he would have had a painkilling injection, to which the 44 goal forward clearly disagreed with: “It is funny.

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

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