An Egyptian lawyer by name Bassem Wahba has expressed his grievances on Sergio Ramos by dragging him to court on a €1 billion law suit after his rough tackle on Egypt star Mohamed Salah during the final of the UEFA Champions League which was on Saturday at the Kiev Stadium.
With just about two weeks to the World Cup, Ramos grappled Salah in the clash and the Egyptian landing heavily on his left shoulder, sustaining injury in the process which later led to his removal from the match, hence putting his World Cup participation in jeopardy.
In an appearance on Egyptian television channel Sada El-Balad , Wahba announced he had filed a complaint to FIFA and accused Ramos of a deliberate act and inflicting “physical and psychological harm” upon a nation and its most celebrated footballer Goal.com reports.
The source further quoted Wahba to say: “Ramos intentionally injured Mo Salah and should be punished about his actions,” he claimed. “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.”
Although Mohamed Salah posted on Twitter on Sunday to say he was “confident” he would be able to represent Hector Cuper’s side at Russia 2018 , but his assurance has not done anything to calm the apparent anger of lawyer Bassem Wahba who is bent on seeing the end of the case.
