Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah does not blame Sergio Ramos from Real Madrid for casting doubts over the footballer’s World Cup dream, physio Ruben Pons claimed. "Salah has not told me anything about Sergio Ramos,” said the Spaniard, adding: "I don’t think he is angry with him. It was an accidental challenge," The Independent reported.
Salah sustained a shoulder injury during Saturday’s Champions League final between Liverpool and Real, with the latter overwhelmingly defeating the British club 3:1. Hordes of fans have blamed Ramos for wounding Saleh ahead of the big kick-off.

Pons also insisted that Liverpool’s medical team was doing everything in its power to have Salah back in time for the 2018 World Cup. Although his recovery will take approximately three to four weeks, they are going to "try and reduce those deadlines," Pons said.
Russia will host its first World Cup championship from June 14 to July 15, with matches scheduled to be played at 12 stadiums in 11 cities, including Moscow, St. Petersburg, Kaliningrad, Volgograd, Kazan, Nizhny Novgorod, Samara, Saransk, Rostov-on-Don, Yekaterinburg and Sochi.
