A bizarre twist in Mohamed Salah’s shoulder injury saga. An Egyptian lawyer has launched a €1billion lawsuit against Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos for his challenge on the Liverpool forward. Salah injured his shoulder because of the challenge and that has brought his World Cup participation in doubt.
Bassem Wahba announced on Egyptian television he has filed a complaint to the FIFA and has accused Ramos of a deliberate act and inflicting “physical and psychological harm” upon a nation and its most celebrated footballer. “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 €1billion, for the physical and psychological harm that Ramos gave Salah and the Egyptian people.” Although it seems very unlikely Wahba will have enough valid grounds to receive any form of compensation, the lawyer has pledged to donate it all to the state’s Long Live Egypt Fund.
