Sergio Ramos vs Mo Salah

Liverpool’s Mo Salah posts encouraging injury update on social media

Liverpool and Egypt star Mohamed Salah has this evening taken to social media to post a photo of himself back in the gym, as the prolific winger continues his recovery from the injury he picked up during the Champions League final.

3-1

Liverpool went head to head with reigning European champions Real Madrid in Kiev last Saturday night, with proceedings having taken a sour turn for Jurgen Klopp’s men with just half an hour gone, when a challenge between Sergio Ramos and Mo Salah left the latter in agony and subsequently forced off with a shoulder injury.

Karim Benzema then went on to open the night’s scoring shortly after half-time, albeit in incredibly fortunate circumstances, as Loris Karius inexplicably attempted to throw the ball across his box, only for Benzema to get a toe on the ball and divert his effort home.

Liverpool did manage to pull a goal back a short time later, when Sadio Mane reacted quickest to Dejan Lovren’s header from a corner to prod home in front of Keylor Navas, but this was as good as things were to get for the Merseysiders.

After substitute Gareth Bale turned the game on its head with a stunning overhead kick from the edge of the box, the Welshman then went on to become the first player to ever score a brace off the bench in a Champions League final.

However, Bale’s second came courtesy of another shocking blunder from Karius, who failed to deal with the former Tottenham man’s relatively-straightforward long-range strike 7 minutes from time.

Rocked

In truth, though it was Karius who took the blame for Liverpool’s defeat, the Reds never quite looked the same following Salah’s injury, with the attacking impetus and, frankly, confidence of Jurgen Klopp’s men having seemingly been sapped away by the exit of their talisman.

In the aftermath of the clash, it was soon revealed that Salah had suffered a dislocated shoulder, with many outlets having immediately responded to the news by claiming that the Egyptian was set to miss this summer’s World Cup.

Encouraging

However, other outlets refuted this claim, with Salah himself having revealed in a Twitter post earlier this week that he is ‘confident’ in his chances of lining out for his country in Russia.

And, in another update across the African’s social media accounts this evening, Salah has posted a photo of himself back in the gym, already working on the left shoulder that was injured just 8 days ago:
