Mohammed Salah has finally broken his silence on ‘that’ tackle of Sergio Ramos and discussed the UEFA Champions League Final for the first time in his interview with Spanish news outlet, MARCA.
Sergio Ramos recently commented on Mohammed Salah’s injury and claimed the Egyptian could have played with some help of pain-killer injections. Mo Salah definitely did not like this piece of advice from the Real Madrid captain and mocked him for talking in such a manner.
“That’s funny…I always say that everything is alright when the one who made you cry is now making you laugh. Maybe he can also tell me if I’m going to be ready for the World Cup?”
Sergio Ramos was crucified by English and Egyptian media as the Liverpool fans claimed the Spaniard had intentionally injured Mohammed Salah. Ramos received death threats due to which he had to change his whole family’s contact number after the final. Salah responded to speculation and claimed that Ramos did indeed call him after the final.
“I don’t know…Maybe? It’s true that he texted me but I never told him that I was okay.”
Salah spoke further about the injury and the tackle which forced him off in the biggest game of his career so far. He claims that the fear of missing the World Cup with Egypt made him even more overwhelmed.
“That was the toughest moment in my career, I had pain but I was also worried and sad because I couldn’t play the Champions League Final. Shortly after I also thought about the possibility of missing the World Cup and that was devastating as well.”
Salah finally confirms his fitness and will possibly be ready for the first group stage game against Uruguay. This comes as a relief to Egyptians who qualified for the World Cup after a long wait of 28 years. The country is featuring in the competition for the third time ever; the earlier two features date back to 1934 and 1990. Mo Salah played a huge role in the qualification of his national side which has made him the most loved person in his home country.
“I’m better now, I hope that I can play the game against Uruguay but that will depend on how I feel when the time comes.”
