You’d struggle to find a Liverpool fan with any shred for sympathy for Sergio Ramos right now.
The Real Madrid captain caused quite a stir amongst Kopites with his performance in last month’s Champions League final, with Los Blancos eventually running away 3-1 victors.
Ramos was involved in an incident in the 49th minute that concussed Loris Karius, who went onto drop two howlers during the match, and was slammed for an overreaction under challenge from Sadio Mane.
Most damningly of all, though, was his role in injuring Mohamed Salah who had to exit the game during the first-half, leaving his World Cup hopes in the balance.
Appearing to grab Salah in some form of arm-lock, the Spaniard brought his adversary to the ground and left him with a shoulder injury.
RAMOS SAID SALAH SHOULD HAVE ‘PLAYED ON’
Thankfully, it’s looking increasingly likely that Salah will be able to make the World Cup but how Ramos has reacted to the incident ever since, has left Liverpool fans fuming.
The 32-year-old noted on Tuesday: “B****y hell, they’ve given this a lot of attention, the Salah thing.
“He could have played if he got an injection for the second half, I have done it sometimes but when Ramos does something like this, it sticks a little bit more.”
Very brave, Sergio…
The comments have received a back-lash ever since and now, the man himself has responded.
SALAH FINALLY RESPONDS TO THE COMMENTS
During an interview with Marca, Salah simply laughed off the comment, noting: “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?”
And when asked about suggestions that he engaged the arm-lock with Ramos, he replied: “It’s funny…
“He sent me a message, but I never told him it was ‘okay.'”
No prisoners from Salah. The Liverpool man was on form with his sassy responses to questioning and actively called out Ramos over suggestions he’d excused the incident.
Salah then proceeded to open up on the devastating feeling of picking up the injury during such a key game.
When asked if it was the worst moment of his career, the Egyptian stated: “Yes, it was.
“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.”
Heartbreaking indeed but despite it all, Salah won’t take any nonsense from Ramos.
