Real Madrid's Sergio Ramos on Mohamed Salah and Loris Karius in UEFA Champions League final victory

Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos has made a sensational claim over the recent media uproar surrounding his involvement of the Mohamed Salah injury and Loris Karius concussion.
Ramos has been at the centre of controversy after video footage surfaced of the Real stalwart elbowing Karius in the Champions League final.
It's since been revealed that the German stopper suffered a concussion as a result of the incident before committing two major errors in the 3-1 defeat.
Ramos was also blamed for the shoulder injury that saw Salah leave the field of play in tears after just 30 minutes into the final in Kiev.
"I am only missing Roberto Firmino saying he got a cold because a drop of my sweat landed on him," Ramos told Spanish publication AS.
"Bloody hell, they have given this Salah thing a lot of attention. I didn't want to speak because everything is magnified.
"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 sticks a little bit more.
"I don't know if it is because you are at Madrid for so long and win for so long that people look at it a different way."
