It was part of a massive global backlash against Ramos, as Salah could miss all of the Egypt's group stage contests, and will certainly miss some of the action, due to shoulder ligament damage suffered during the incident.
"My comment is that it's always okay when the one who made you cry first, then makes you laugh", Salah responded in an interview with Marca.
Mo Salah has surprised everyone by suggesting that he will be fit in time to face Uruguay in Egypt's opening game of the World Cup, despite the shoulder injury picked up in the Champions League final. I don't know. Maybe?
Speaking afterwards, Hazard praised Egypt's performance in the absence of Premier League Golden Boot victor Salah, who he hopes will take part at the showpiece tournament.
"Now I'm better, though".
Last October, the Liverpool winger scored twice in the win over Congo that qualified Egypt, nicknamed the Pharaohs, for their third finals - and their first since 1990.
The former Chelsea attacker enjoyed a sensational debut season for Liverpool, scoring 44 goals in 52 appearances across all competitions and winning the Premier League Golden Boot. "It was not normal because we won the African Cup seven times, and we were champions in 2006, 2008 and 2010", he added.
"He grabbed 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", stated Ramos. Panama will make their World Cup debut in Russian Federation, where the central Americans will face England, Belgium and Tunisia in Group G. But Hernan Dario Gomez's men will be hoping for an upturn in fortunes after this latest setback ahead of the June 14-July 15 showpiece.
The injury sent shock waves around Egypt with initial fears that he could miss the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation. In my head the pressure is to achieve something different from what we have done.
"It's not a simple case of going, playing three games and thank you very much. That doesn't go through my head".
