Mo Salah has hit back at Sergio Ramos’ latest comments about the injury he sustained in the Champions League final, and noted that while Ramos did contact him, things weren’t quite as clear cut as the Real Madrid defender claimed.
Ramos said Salah has told him it was okay, and even went as far as saying Salah could have played the through the second half – if he’d had an injection and played through the pain.
Ramos also made comments about Loris Karius and Roberto Firmino – and Salah made it clear just how he felt.
He spoke to Marca and said: “My comment is that it’s always okay when the one who made you cry, then makes you laugh.
“Maybe he could also tell me if I’m going to be ready for the World Cup?“
He also spoke about the pain it caused him both mentally and physically, and noted that it was terrible for him.
Salah said he was as bothered by the mental aspect of possibly missing the World Cup – and called it the worst game of his life.
He added: “When I fell to the ground, I felt 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.”
