It’s safe to say that most of the Middle East and fans of Egyptian footballer Mohammed Salah and the team Liverpool were enraged with last night’s events. During the Champions League final in Kiev on Saturday, many witnessed Mo Salah’s arm being grabbed by Sergio Ramos of Real Madrid and was tackled down.
The match resulted in a 3-1 with Real Madrid ahead of Liverpool.
Most of the region were absolutely enraged by this and trending topics quickly took over Twitter, like wildfire.
Mohammed Salah was left in tears, according to The Independent, after suffering a shoulder injury from the incident. He laid without motion on the pitch, with his left arm extended.
The words ‘son of a dog’, Ramos’ and Mo Salah’s names were among the top trending hashtags on Sunday
Thousands of tweets erupted on the social media platform, with everyone expressing Ramos’ move as unacceptable, while others argue it might have not been intentional.

“He’s the football embodiment of winning ugly.”
In just one match, Sergio Ramos dislocated Mo Salah’s shoulder, elbowed Loris Karius prior to his goalkeeping mistakes and indulged in this disgraceful display of play acting.

While other football fanatics had their doubts about the popular notion…
“Love him or hate him. He’s one of the best CB’s in the world.”
Love him or hate him. He’s one of the best CB’s in the world. It’s old school to target the star man, unfortunately it looks a dislocated shoulder ????????♂️
