World Cup 2018: Mohamed Salah hits out at Sergio Ramos tackle in Liverpool loss and gives update on fitness

Mohamed Salah has hit back at Sergio Ramos after the Real Madrid defender said he could have played on with a dislocated shoulder during the Champions League final last month.

Egypt are sweating on the Liverpool forward’s participation in the World Cup 2018 after the injury although Salah is hopeful he will make his country’s first game in Russia, against Uruguay on Friday.

In an interview this week, Ramos insisted Salah could have played on with an injection to the shoulder before poking fun at Loris Karius and suggesting he would have been blamed if Roberto Firmino had got a cold from a drop of his sweat.

He also said that Salah was to blame for the so-called ‘judo hold’ which caused the injury but the Egyptian had a different view.

When asked if it was the lowest point of his career he told Marca: “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.”

He was also asked about Ramos’ comments to which he said: “It’s funny… 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?

“He sent me a message, but I never told him it was okay.”
