Mohamed Salah injury: Sergio Ramos purposely ‘roughed up’ Liverpool star - Dean Saunders

Retired Egyptian footballer Mido has accused Real Madrid's Sergio Ramos of "intentionally" hurting compatriot Mohamed Salah during the Champions League final on Saturday.

The Real Madrid captain wrapped Salah's arm underneath him and pivoted, sending the Reds' no.11 crashing to the ground.

However, Salah has since confirmed through social media that he is hoping to recover quickly and still be fit to represent Egypt in Russian Federation. Despite the odds, I'm confident thay I will be in Russian Federation to make you all proud. "Your love and support will give me the strength I need", the tweet read, accompanied by a photo of a visibly distraught Salah making his way out of the pitch.

Egyptian media reported Salah wouldn't kick a ball in anger for three weeks.

Aziz wished a speedy and full recovery for Salah, and that he would lead the Egyptian team to glory at the World Cup. Have your say in the comments section below.
