Egyptian lawyer threatens Sergio Ramos with $1.67b lawsuit after Mohamed Salah injury

An Egyptian lawyer claims to have filed a lawsuit potentially exceeding €1billion (NZ$1.67b) against Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos after his tangle with Mohamed Salah left the Liverpool star injured and therefore in danger of missing the World Cup.

The Egyptian Football Federation has announced that Salah will travel to Spain to undergo treatment on his shoulder injury, which he suffered when landing awkwardly following a robust challenge from the Spanish defender during Real's 3-1 victory over Liverpool in the Champions League final on Saturday (Sunday NZ time).


Salah, 25, has emerged as one of the stars of world football after scoring 44 goals in his debut season with the Reds but his place at the World Cup in Russia is in jeopardy after the Egyptian forward left the field in tears during the first half of Liverpool's defeat in the decider in Kiev.

Lawyer Bassem Wahba said on Egyptian national television he has launched a lawsuit against Ramos for the "physical and pyschologial harm" it has given the people of Egypt.

"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."
Salah and Egypt's medical team are "confident" he will be fit for their World Cup campaign, which starts against Uruguay on June 15, after the latter claimed he suffered "a sprain in the shoulder ligaments".

But the full nature and seriousness of his injury has not been disclosed yet and, under FIFA regulations, Egypt have until June 4 to decide whether Salah is able to play any part in Russia.
Salah is so popular in Egypt that more than one million people voted for him in the country's presidential election in March, crossing out the other two candidates and scribbling Mo Salah instead.

Abdul Fattah al-Sisi was re-elected for a second four-year term after sweeping up 92 per cent of the vote, while the spoiled ballot papers with Salah's name on came second with five per cent.
