Champions League final: Egyptians furious at Mohamed Salah injury


The injury that forced Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah to leave the pitch 30 minutes into the Champions League final has stirred widespread online anger among Egyptians.

Egyptian Salah sustained an injury to his left shoulder after Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos grabbed his arm while both were tussling for the ball.

Salah, who left the pitch in tears, broke the heart of many fans who showed him their love and support on social media.

Several Arabic hashtags supportive of Salah and furious at Ramos were trending after the match, garnering thousands of tweets.

Many users, in posts with the #Ramosthedog (14.9K tweets) and #Ramostheanimal (47.9K tweets), considered the injury as no accident.

“No player goes down clutching the players arm like this. It was intentional. He deserves to get banned,” @MemoK896 tweeted.

Expressing a similar view, Syrian @Ismail_hajOsman said: “He did it on purpose.”

“I’ve never seen Egyptians this furious in my entire life. Oh Ramos! what have you done?” @EmanMohy74 tweeted.

“Egyptians coming for Ramos if Salah misses the World Cup like…” @Boshkaaaaa threatened.
