Mohamed Salah injury: Liverpool ace’s agent makes Champions League final claim

Mohamed Salah injury: Liverpool ace’s agent makes Champions League final claim

That’s the belief of the Egyptian winger’s agent Ramy Abbas Issa.

The Liverpool ace came into the clash looking to crown his stunning first 12 months at Anfield on the grandest stage of them all against Cristiano Ronaldo and Real Madrid.

But his hopes of adding to his 44-goal haul were scrapped after a collision with Madrid captain Sergio Ramos resulted in a serious shoulder injury that forced him off in tears with a third of the game gone.Mohamed Salah left the pitch in tears over fears his World Cup dream might also have been over

Liverpool went on to lose 3-1 with Gareth Bale coming from the bench to score twice, one of which was a viable contender for the best final goal of all time; a brilliant looping bicycle kick.

The Merseyside outfit had been the better team in the first 30 minutes before Salah’s forced substitution but carried disappointingly-little open play threat without their star forward as Sadio Mane’s goal came from a corner.

Salah’s World Cup hopes are even under threat as a result of his issue although the player, and the Egypt national team, remain hopeful that he can be involved in Russia - their first campaign since 1990.

And in a series of tweets, Salah’s representative Abbas Issa, declared that Salah was “robbed” of playing the final after his coming-together with Ramos - who has been accused of deliberate cynical behaviour throughout the final in Kiev.

Abbas Issa said: “I will not shy away from saying it would have been a different story had he remained on the field... without a shadow of a doubt.”

Another tweet read: “The toughest 24 hours of my life... That horrid sinking feeling when he went down, robbed of the final he earned and so deserved... 

“And not knowing then whether that nightmare would extend to deprive him of his World Cup dream…”

He did however reveal a positive update as to Salah’s fitness - with reports over his hopes of playing for Egypt this summer having proven vastly contrasting so far amid suggestions of a dislocation.

Abbas Issa said: “He's confident he'll make it, and that should do it.”

Salah’s injury is a cruel blow having had the best season of his career so far, scoring 44 goals and providing 16 assists in 52 appearances for Jurgen Klopp’s side.
