A petition for football governing bodies UEFA and FIFA to ‘punish Sergio Ramos for intentionally hurting Mohamed Salah’ has passed 200,000 signatures.
Ramos was the subject of much vitriol during Saturday’s Champions League final as he wrestled Salah to the ground and dislocated his shoulder after just half an hour.
The Liverpool forward is reported to have dislocated his shoulder, and could even miss the World Cup, and some fans have made clear they want to see the defender punished.
A petition started by user ‘Mohamed Salah Abdel-Hakeem’ on change.org has called for UEFA and FIFA to ‘punish Sergio Ramos for intentionally hurting Mohamed Salah’ during the match.
The description reads: “Sergio Ramos intentionally kept Mohamed Salah’s arm under his armpit, causing dislocation of his shoulder. Not only missing the rest of the game, but also missing the FIFA World Cup 2018.
“In addition he kept acting that Liverpool players fouled him falsely, causing the referee to give Manne [sic] a yellow card he did not deserve.
“Sergio Ramos represents an awful example to future generations of football players. Instead of winning matches fairly, he uses tricks that defy the spirit of the game and fair play.
“UEFA and FIFA should take measures against Ramos and similar players, using the video recordings of matches to keep the spirit of the game.”
Though the petition was only started on Saturday night, over 200,000 people had signed it by Sunday.
