Salah: Leaving Champions League final worst moment of my career

Salah: Leaving Champions League final worst moment of my career

"It was (the worst moment of my career)", Salah began.

Ramos was heavily criticised for his role in the incident, but he said things had "been blown out of all proportion" and that he had exchanged messages with Salah, who had told him everything was OK. Get the app and get the game.

After being forced off in the Champions League final after just half an hour in Kiev, it was suggested Salah could miss the World Cup finals.

While Ramos was largely vilified for his role, he defended his actions and said he had sent a message of support to Salah - whose place in the World Cup came under threat from the injury.

The Pharaohs' squad and coaching staff were hosted by the country's president at the presidential palace on Saturday, one day before heading to Russian Federation to make Egypt's first World Cup appearance since 1990.

With Egypt having qualified for only their third ever World Cup, Salah's thoughts turned to his race against time to recover. "That was a devastating thought". He won three different player of the year awards in England and nearly single-handedly led Egypt to their first World Cup in 28 years by scoring five goals in the last six qualifiers.

"Now I'm better", he revealed in an exclusive interview with Spanish newspaper Marca.

"I feel much better now and I'll be ready to play against Uruguay". It was not normal because we won the African Cup seven times.

Many of his fans had feared he would miss the World Cup altogether, but his appearance in Cairo has reignited expectations in The Pharaohs' key striker. His injury raised fears about his chances for appearing with Egypt at the World Cup, which opens in Russian Federation next week.

Egypt were missing injured forward Mohamed Salah but their coach Hector Cuper said his talisman might be fit for the opening Group A game against Uruguay on June 15. "That doesn't go through my head".
