'Salah Was Stupid In UCL Final, Ramos Did Nothing Wrong'

Many blamed Sergio Ramos for Mohamed Salah's injury in last season's UEFA Champions League final, but a certain football personality feels it was, in fact, the African superstar who "was at fault".

Salah Overtakes Messi Among Most Valuable Stars, CR7 Not In Top 10

The Egyptian was substituted in the first half of Liverpool's 3-1 loss to Real Madrid in the 2017/18 UCL final after injuring his shoulder in a challenge with Ramos.

Many took to social media to point the finger at the Los Blancos captain, but in a recent interview, Ruud Gullit revealed that he feels Salah had only himself to blame.

"Mo Salah was at fault, it was stupid what he did," the Dutchman told beIN SPORTS.

"He tried to muscle him (Ramos), (it) gave him all the opportunity to turn him around.

"I don't blame Ramos."

The injury resulted in Salah going to the 2018 FIFA World Cup unfit, where he was unable to inspire his country to a strong showing in the tournament.
