The Egyptian has nailed the 2018 final against Madrid and bets on getting the thorn out on Saturday. Not only did the defeat hurt him, but he only played 30 minutes after the match with Ramos.
ld prematurely, covered in tears and visibly sore. A set with Sergio Ramos in a struggle ended with El Faraon on the ground. The fall was on the left shoulder, he hurt himself and ended his life. Then came the failures of Karius, under pressure from Benzema and Bale’s very distant shot; the Welshman’s scissors that sealed his double; and Mané’s goal that equalized the match before the appearance of Cardiff’s. A 3-1 that hurt all of Liverpool, but even more so to Salah who hopes to get rid of that thorn this Saturday in Paris. That memory is still very vivid in his mind. ” If I’m honest, I want to play against Real Madrid. City is a good team and we’ve already played against them several times this season, but I want to play against Madrid because we lost a final against them. And I want to win this time,” he said. on the pitch at La Cerámica , moments after eliminating Villarreal and less than 24 minutes before the Whites pulled off their feet against Guardiola’s team. And it didn’t take long, as soon as he knew that his dream had come true, to take his feelings to Twitter: “We have an account to settle . ” There are plenty of explanations.
After the incident, the controversy was not long in accompanying the other protagonist of the story. ” The situation with Salah caused people to think differently about me, especially in England. But I have a clear conscience. I would never hurt a teammate on purpose,” Ramos explained some time later . Just as Klopp himself, after the final, was outraged: “If you see him again and you don’t go with Real Madrid then you think he is ruthless and brutal.” “If there is VAR, it is a situation where you have to look again. Not to get a red card directly, but to take a look and say: ‘What is that? He has been ruthless,'” the German completed. At Liverpool’s Open Media Day , the topic has returned to center stage. Most have avoided talking about revenge, but Salah has once again shown that he has not forgotten. “It was the hardest moment of my career. Going out after 30 minutes is the worst thing that can happen to a player. When I found out we had lost I said: ‘We can’t lose this way’ . But the following year we won it.”
