A groin injury complicates Salah’s Champions League final

  • Real Madrid-Liverpool Clément Turpin, the referee of the final

Mohammed Salah he left the FA Cup final against Chelsea due to a groin injury, which only allowed him to play 30 minutes at Wembley. The Egyptian, top scorer (22) and assistant (14) in the Premier League, had to leave his place to Diogo Jotaso his presence for the Champions League final, on May 28 in Paris, remains in doubt.

The moment he felt the pain, Salah sat down on the grass, explaining his ailment to Thiago Alcantara Y Naby Keita. His gloomy gestures, shaking his head in denial, did not show anything good for Jurgen Kloppwho only three minutes earlier had already suffered another scare with his goalkeeper.

The problem of Allison Becker in his right leg had been caused by an entrance of Mark Alonso, protagonist of the clearest chance for Chelsea in the first half. The quick intervention of the goalkeeper, who covered the gaps to the Spanish side, was going to close with an ugly blow to the shin. Finally, the Brazilian was able to continue in the match.

Fabinho’s options

The one who could not enter the squad for Wembley was Fabinho, who on Tuesday suffered a torn thigh during the match against Aston Villa. The first radiological tests estimated that the Brazilian will not be able to play the last two days of the Premier, although Klopp was optimistic about his presence against Real Madrid. “There is a good chance that he can arrive,” predicted the German coach.

It should be remembered that on Tuesday, Liverpool hastened its chances of snatching the league title from Manchester City at Southampton, while five days later it hosts Wolverhampton Wanderers at Anfield. Both appointments now seem distant for Salah, who could only play the first quarter of an hour of the 2018 Champions League final, due to a left shoulder injury in a controversial action with Sergio Ramos.
