If you thought that the hullabaloo surrounding the way and manner that the 2018 Champions’ League Final Game was played and won is over, you surely are wrong as not only F.C. Liverpool fans are unhappy with issues surrounding the match but also Egyptians who are now worried that Mohamed Sallah may not be fully fit to play for their national team in the 2018 World Cup Competition starting in Russia in only a few days’ time.
This is because of the injury Sallah copped after being brought down in that match by Real Madrid’s captain, Sergio Ramos.
As a matter of fact, the issue has taken a legal dimension as an Egyptian lawyer has filed a €1 billion lawsuit against Sergio Ramos for the injury which he inflicted on Mohamed Salah in that final match.
The Egyptian forward left the pitch in tears with a suspected ligament damage of his shoulder, which ended Liverpool’s early dominance in Kiev as Real Madrid went on to win the game 3-1.
There were fears that Mohamed Salah was ruled out of the World Cup because of that injury – Jurgen Klopp said post-match that it was likely he will miss the tournament – but the player is now “confident” of taking part.
An Egyptian lawyer, Bassem Wahba is keen to press ahead with the lawsuit, confirming his intention on Egyptian television.
“Ramos intentionally injured Mo Salah and should be punished about his actions,” he claimed on the Sada El-Balad channel.
“I’ve filed a lawsuit and a complaint to Fifa.
“I’ll ask for compensation, which could exceed €1 billion (£873 million), for the physical and psychological harm that Ramos gave Salah and the Egyptian people”, he further said.
