- An Egyptian lawyer has filed a lawsuit against Sergio Ramos for Mohamed Salah's injury in Saturday's Champions League final
- The lawyer believes Ramos intentionally caused Salah's injury which saw the Egyptian attacker being substituted from the game and put his participation in the 2018 World Cup in doubt
- The lawyer is thus seeking a 1 billion euro compensation for the psychological and physical trauma Ramos caused Salah and the Egyptian people
An Egyptian lawyer has launched a €1 billion (£873m/$1.2bn) lawsuit against Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos over Liverpool and Egypt star Mohamed Salah was injured in a challenge with the Real Madrid captain during Saturday's Champions League final.
According to the lawyer, Bassem Wahba, Ramos must be punished for Salah's injury for deliberately causing "physical and psychological harm" upon a nation and its most celebrated footballer.
Appearing on Egyptian television channel Sada El-Balad, Wahba announced he had filed a complaint to FIFA and accused Ramos of intentionally injuring Salah.
""Ramos intentionally injured Mo Salah and should be punished about his actions. I've filed a lawsuit and a complaint to FIFA. I'll ask for compensation, which could exceed €1 billion, for the physical and psychological harm that Ramos gave Salah and the Egyptian people," Goal
Salah's Champions League final ended abruptly after he left the pitch in tears following an injury which was later said to be dislocated shoulder.
Salah had landed heavily on his left shoulder after grappling with Ramos during the Kiev encounter which ended 3-1 in favour of Real Madrid.
The injury, it had been thought, was going to affect his World Cup participation. This left many Egyptians in despair as they obviously knew they would have very little chance without their talisman.
The Premier League Golden Boot winner posted on Twitter to say he was "confident" he would be able to represent Hector Cuper's side at Russia 2018.
However, that has done nothing to quell the apparent anger of lawyer Bassem Wahba.
In the seemingly unlikely event of winning any compensation, Wahba has pledged to donate to the state's Long Live Egypt Fund.
On Monday, a petition on the Change.org website asking UEFA and FIFA to take action against Ramos for the challenge on Salah passed 300,000 signatories.
It must be noted that the encounter which led to Salah's injury was not adjudged as a foul by referee Milorad Mazic.
