Since Saturday night, the world holds its breath to know if Mohamed Salah will be fit to play the World Cup with his country. The Egyptian was injured after contact with Sergio Ramos in the Champions League final against Real Madrid. If Liverpool lost (3-1), Salah’s injury looked like déjà vu for football fans.
Sergio Ramos, reputed to be one of the most vicious defenders on the planet, can not deny his involvement in Mohamed Salah’s clavicle injury. If different angles show that there is a fault of the Spaniard, the referee of the meeting felt that there was nothing. Yet last season, also in the Champions League final, Sergio Ramos was punished for a largely similar foul on Dani Alves.
THE FAULT OF RAMOS ON DANI ALVES:
Une action qui date de la finale 2017 de LDC.
Ramos qui fais presque même la clé de bras à Dani Alves qu’à Salah.
Assez Troublant 🤨pic.twitter.com/8rpJeU08bK

A fault that shows once again that the behavior of the Spanish defender is very limited in the field. If it does not necessarily deserve a yellow card for the one on Mo Salah, we can understand that the player annoys more and more supporters of Real opponents. In addition, whistled or not, it would not have prevented the injury of the star of the Reds. Volunteer or not, we let you choose:
After this act, a petition was launched on the web for Ramos to be punished. At present, it has exceeded 460,000 signatures. But this is not the most unlikely event that took place after the meeting and the terrible announcement of the probable package of The Egyptian King. Bassem Wahba, an Egyptian lawyer, claimed 1 billion euros in damages from Sergio Ramos. He said: « I filed a complaint and I spoke to FIFA. I will ask compensation, which could amount to one billion euros, for the physical and psychological injury that Ramos inflicted on Salah and the Egyptian people. »
A procedure a little crazy but understandable when we know that Egypt will play its first World Cup after 28 years of absence. To do without the best player in the country would be terrible news for the nation of the pharaohs.
