Ramos labeled ‘idiotic’ as Salah refuses to forgive him

Liverpool and Egypt soccer star, Mohammed Salah, has responded to Sergio Ramos’ comments on the Champions League final injury and laughed off the Spaniard’s claims as “funny.”
Mohamed Salah, he does not thing he would forgive the Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos because of his utterances after the injury. Salah left the pitch in Kiev in tears after a tackle by Ramos left the Egyptian with a damaged shoulder, putting his World Cup hopes in jeopardy.
Mohamed Salah says he has not buried the hatchet with Sergio Ramos following their tangle in the Champions League final which left the Liverpool forward injured. But Salah, who also said it was “funny” for Ramos to claim he was the man fouled when the pair clashed.
And having seen Ramos ridicule recent criticism over challenges on Salah and Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius, the Egyptian stars is not in the mood for forgiveness.
Salah told a Spanish newspaper, Marca: ‘It was the worst moment of my career. 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.
‘He sent me a message, but I never told him it was OK. I hope to play the first game against Uruguay, but that will depend on how I feel when it approaches.”
Sergio Ramos has been labelled an ‘idiot’ by Salah’s Liverpool team-mate Roberto Firmino.
Nigerian-born English player, Adebayo Akinfenwa, a strong Liverpool fan, who plays Wycombe Wanderers of England, has also sent a light-hearted warning to the Spaniard.
Akinfenwa took to Twitter to make his feelings known. ‘Don’t worry Liverpool FC I will always have your back. #YNWA #WeInThisTogether #SometimesYouHave2Smile #BeastMode,’ he tweeted alongside a video.
He ended the video by crunching a boot and Akinfenwa’s reply was met with great support by Liverpool fans on Twitter afterwards.
‘HAHAHA my guy Liverpool need to sign you up,’ wrote @JakeFutboI while @bonquixote commented ‘Lmao. Make this man the first non LFC player to be made club ambassador.’
Ramos and Akinfenwa are unlikely to ever cross paths on the football pitch but if they did, the former has been warned by the man known as ‘The Beast.’
There is a possibility that Ramos could come up against Salah’s Egypt in Russia in what would prove an intriguing match-up given what happened in Ukraine.
Egypt start their campaign in Group A with hosts Russia, Saudi Arabia and group favourites Uruguay.
Salah’s swift return to fitness – he picked up the injury on May 26 – is a welcome boost for Egypt boss Hector Cuper, who accepted his side lack’s something special when Salah is missing.
The Egyptian talisman played no part in the 3-0 defeat by Belgium in Brussels on Wednesday but is expected to feature against Luis Suarez’s Uruguay in Ekaterinburg on June 15.
Salah remains uncertain if he will play in the opening Group A clash with Uruguay.
In a related development, Salah has told Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi he is on the road to recovery following a shoulder injury in the Champions League final.
“The President was reassured on the health condition of the player ‘Mohamed Salah’, who affirmed that his condition is improving notably and that he is on his way to recovery, god willing,” presidency spokesman Bassam Radi said on Saturday.
Salah has undergone treatment in Valencia, Spain, in the hope of playing a role in Egypt’s first appearance in the World Cup since 1990. He was included in the Egypt squad announced on Monday.
