Giorgio Chiellini says Sergio Ramos’ takedown of Mo Salah in 2018 CL final was a ‘masterstroke’

Salah is down

Real Madrid captain Ramos grabbed Salah by the arm and hauled him to the ground in the first half of the contest in Kiev, causing the Egyptian to go off with a shoulder injury.

Salah was in tears as he departed and Zinedine Zidane’s Real Madrid side capitalised on the absence of Liverpool’s danger man, going on to win 3-1.

Ramos pleaded innocence afterwards but Chiellini believes he knew what he was doing and said it’s an example of the Spaniard’s “devilish wit”.

“They say he’s impulsive, not tactical at all, that 8-10 goals are conceded each season through his mistakes, that he’s very technical and that he could be a striker, which is the opposite of me,” Chiellini writes in his autobiography, per AS.

“However, he has two characteristics that almost no-one else has. He knows how to be decisive in big games, with interventions that go beyond any logic, that even cause injuries with almost devilish wit.

“The one on Salah in the 2018 Champions League final was a masterstroke. He’s always said that he didn’t do it on purpose, knowing that nine times out of 10, falling like he did and by not letting go, he risked breaking his opponent’s arm.”

Ramos wasn’t punished for the foul and was also involved in the incident that caused Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius to suffer a concussion.

The centre-back played down the challenge on Salah, saying the Liverpool man could have carried on if he had an injection.

“Bloody hell, they have given this Salah thing a lot of attention. I didn’t want to speak because everything is magnified,” Ramos said, per the Daily Mail.

“I see the play well, he grabs my arm first and I fell to the other side, the injury happened to the other arm and they said that I gave him a judo hold. After that, the goalkeeper said I dazed him with a clash.

“I spoke with Salah through messages, he was quite good. He could have played if he got an injection for the second half. I have done it sometimes but when Ramos does something like this, it stick out a little bit more.”
