Salah suffers injury just two weeks before the Champions League final

Liverpool suffered a blow in the first half of the FA Cup final, one that could present a major problem for their remaining games in 2021/22, including the Champions League final against Real Madrid.

On the half hour mark, Mohamed Salah sat on the ground with an injury, one that forced Jurgen Klopp to substitute the Egyptian for Diogo Jota.

It wasn’t initially clear what kind of injury Salah suffered, but he was seen clutching his leg before he limped off.

With two crucial Premier League games still to come for Liverpool, as well as the Champions League final in Paris on May 28, this is a huge blow for Jurgen Klopp.

More Champions League final heartbreak for Salah

If he does have to miss the Champions League final, it’ll be yet more heartbreak for Salah after he had to go off with a shoulder injury early into the 2018 match against Real Madrid.

“I remember the last Champions League final against Real Madrid as if it was yesterday,” he said in a recent interview with BeIN Sport.

“When I left the pitch last time, it was sad for me, but I had to accept it and move on. That’s why we won the Champions League a year later.

“I feel very excited about facing them in the final again. We want to do well this time.

“All my life I’ve been thinking this way and tried to stay on the right track. In the past, there were those who told me that I would not be able to achieve anything after leaving Chelsea but I stayed positive.”

“I hope we can achieve the quadruple. I’m doing my best to win the Premier League and the Champions League, but the most important thing is the team.”
