Mo Salah laughs off Sergio Ramos’ suggestion that he could have continued playing

Liverpool winger Mohamed Salah has laughed off Sergio Ramos’ suggestion that he could have played on after his match-ending shoulder injury in last month’s Champions League final.

Salah dislocated his shoulder after a first-half tackle from Ramos where the Real Madrid defender locked arms with the Egyptian before dragging him down to the ground.

The Madrid defender said that Salah could have played in the second-half if he had an injection, a suggestion that was immediately dismissed by Salah.

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

“Maybe he could also tell me if I’m going to be ready for the World Cup? It’s funny… He sent me a message, but I never told him it was ‘okay.’”

Salah described the injury as the worst moment of his professional career but he hopes to be ready for Egypt’s World Cup opener against Uruguay next week.

“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.

”Now I’m better. I hope to play the first game against Uruguay, but that will depend on how I feel when it [the match] approaches.”
