Mohamed Salah sustained a serious shoulder injury against Real Madrid during the Champions League final and an Egyptian lawyer has launched a lawsuit against Sergio Ramos for “intentionally injuring” the winger.

Both Liverpool fans and Egyptian supporters despaired when they saw Mo Salah leaving the pitch on Saturday evening. The Premier League’s top goalscorer was forced off the pitch after just half an hour after being wrestled to the pitch by Sergio Ramos.

The Real Madrid captain wrapped Salah’s arm underneath him and pivoted, sending the Reds’ no.11 crashing to the ground. The former AS Roma forward landed on his left shoulder with all his weight behind him, damaging ligaments in his shoulder.

Although the Egyptian FA is confident Salah will be fit for the World Cup in Russia in three week’s time, a lawyer has filed a €1 billion (£873m/$1.2bn) lawsuit against Serio Ramos for his cynical actions.

According to Goal UK, Egyptian lawyer Bassem Wahba has filed a complaint and lawsuit to FIFA with regard to Ramos injuring Salah in Kiev.


Speaking on Egyptian television channel Sada El-Balad, Wahba revealed he has filed a complaint to FIFA and has accused Ramos of deliberately inflicting “physical and psychological harm” on Salah and Egypt.

“Ramos intentionally injured Mo Salah and should be punished about his actions,” he claimed. “I’ve filed a lawsuit and a complaint to FIFA.

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

With it quite clear that Wahba is unlikely to receive compensation from his lawsuit, the lawyer has promised to donate to “the state’s Long Live Egypt Fund.”
