Reflecting on the most contentious moment of the 2018 Champions League final in Kiev – Sergio Ramos’ injuring of Mo Salah – Roberto Carlos joked that the Egyptian would not want to go near the Real Madrid captain in the upcoming quarter final, as reported by AS.

The Liverpool star had been in scintillating form that season, registering a ludicrous 44 goals, though his contribution was limited to the first half hour after sustaining a dislocated shoulder.

“Salah is not even going to get close to Sergio,” the Real Madrid legend said. “It will be an action that is going to be talked about a lot.”
