Champions League final: Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah suffers suspected dislocated shoulder

He's the greatest player in Egypt's history, we haven't reached the World Cup for 28 years and we're just too close for all of our dreams to be shattered.

"I believe we will be back (in the Champions League final)".

"Sergio Ramos intentionally kept Mohamed Salah's arm under his armpit, causing dislocation of his shoulder", the petition reads.

The final had been hyped as a duel between Salah and Real's Cristiano Ronaldo, who patted the Egyptian on the head as he walked off the field.

Liverpool's Egyptian forward Mohamed Salah (R) falls with Real Madrid's defender Sergio Ramos leading to Salah being injured.

And Salah himself, who it was feared may miss the World Cup, has since refuted those claims and said he was "confident" he would make it to Russian Federation.

Salah had also scored the goal that took Egypt to the World Cup when he netted a dramatic late penalty in a qualifier against Congo in October. Real Madrid eventually won 3-1, claiming their third consecutive Champions League trophy.


Right now, it's safe to say that the only other player from Saturday's final having a rougher time on social media than Ramos is Liverpool goalkeeper, Loris Karius, who according to the UK's Independent, has been receiving death threats.

He is determined to make it to Russian Federation and said: "It was a very tough night, but I'm a fighter".

Salah's injury played a major role in Liverpool's failure to win a sixth European Cup.

"I'll ask for compensation, which could exceed €1 billion, for the physical and psychological harm that Ramos gave Salah and the Egyptian people".

The match was goalless but Jurgen Klopp's side were in the ascendency until midway through the first half when they lost their 44-goal forward with a shoulder injury after falling in a tangle with Sergio Ramos.

Egypt will be at the World Cup for the first time since 1990 and face hosts Russia, Uruguay and Saudi Arabia in Group A.

Both Liverpool fans and Egyptian supporters despaired when they saw Mo Salah leaving the pitch on Saturday evening.
