Egypt coach slams Ramos over the Spaniard's recent Salah comments

June 6, 2018 By Ali M.
Another man has taken a swipe at the Real Madrid and Spain captain.

The war of words over the incident involving Sergio Ramos and Mohamed Salah has now seen the Egypt coach get involved. While the attacker himself has not made any ill remarks about the defender since their Champions League final clash, the Spaniard continues to suffer from the backlash.

The Real Madrid and Spain skipper has become public enemy number one after his collision with the Liverpool ace in their meeting in Kyiv left the North African star with a shoulder injury. He now looks likely to feature in the World Cup, but then everyone thought it was all over for the Egyptian when he was forced to leave the pitch in the first half.

Ramos recently made comments about that incident in which he ridicules claims that he intentionally hurt the 25-year-old. He also hinted that Salah could have carried on playing while mocking accusations that he gave Reds goalkeeper Karius a concussion.

He said: "I spoke with Salah through messages. He was quite good. He could have played on if he got an injection for the second half, I have done it sometimes but when Ramos does something like this, it sticks a little bit more."

This saw Hector Cuper fire back at the center-back. The national team boss questioned the validity of Ramos' remarks given the fact that the Roja ace is not a doctor. 

"I'm not a doctor, I don't know if [Sergio] Ramos is a doctor, but it's a player who is playing a final and has an injury," Cuper said to reporters, as per CalcioMercato.

"I don't have any doubt that if he could keep playing he would do it, because a Champions League final is extraordinary."

"My opinion is that Salah has an important injury, there is a recovering [process] that we can see, and we are optimistic about the chances he has to play in the World Cup," he said.

"We listen to many things, but the reality is that the doctors recover or confirm a problem in a player."

The Pharaohs boss gave this response ahead of his side's friendly against Belgium. They will travel to lock horns with the Red Devils in a World Cup warm-up to see how they will fare against a European heavyweight.
