Over 150,000 football fans around the world signed an online petition to get Sergio Ramos punished for ‘intentionally’ hurting Liverpool talisman Mohamed Salah during the UEFA Champions League 2019 final between the Reds and Real Madrid.
Supporters have called on UEFA as well as FIFA to take action against the Spaniard, who got tangled with Salah in a challenge during the final, causing a shoulder injury to the Egyptian, morale dip for Jurgen Klopp’s side leading to Liverpool losing and threat of Salah missing out on FIFA World Cup 2018 in Russia.
The petition on change.org further said, “In addition he (Ramos) kept acting that Liverpool players fouled him falsely, causing the referee to give Mane a yellow card he did not deserve. Sergio Ramos represents an awful example to future generations of football players. Instead of winning matches fairly, he uses tricks that defy the spirit of the game and fair play.”
Ramos sent out a tweet after the match wishing Salah speedy recovery. He tweeted, “Sometimes football shows you its good side and others the bad. Above all we are fellow pros. Get well soon, Salah. The future awaits you.’
El fútbol te enseña la cara más dulce a veces y la más amarga otras. Ante todo somos compañeros. Pronta recuperación, Salah. El futuro te espera.||Sometimes football shows you it’s good side and other times the bad. Above all, we are fellow pros. #GetWellSoon @MoSalah

Meanwhile, Liverpool keeper Loris Kauris, who committed horrendous errors and was a miserable sight at the end of the game, said that he did not sleep all night and apologised for letting the fans down. He tweeted, “Haven’t really slept until now… the scenes are still running through my head again and again… I’m infinitely sorry to my teammates, for you fans, and for all the staff. I know that I messed it up with the two mistakes and let you all down…”
