Mohamed Salah’s injury: They want to kill my children, Real Madrid’s Sergio Ramos claims

Real Madrid and Spain captain Sergio Ramos revealed that his family received “death threats” in the aftermath of the Champions League final against Liverpool.

Ramos, 32, was reacting to the treatment he received from fans who jeered and booed him throughout Spain’s 2-1 victory over England on Saturday at Wembley.

Los Blancos beat Jurgen Klopp’s side 3-1 in May to claim their third successive Champions League title, with Mohamed Salah being forced off with a shoulder injury midway through the first half following a challenge by Ramos.

Ramos was also involved in a collision with Loris Karius before the goalkeeper made two crucial mistakes for Madrid’s first and third goals, with some fans accusing the Spain international of deliberately injuring both players.

He told reporters in the mixed zone: “One tries to evade [the boos]. In the end you feel it, but I stay out of everything. It doesn’t affect my game.

“I would have liked another reception because people only remember the action of the final, and nobody remembers the death threats that my family and my children received.

“It is a very sensitive issue that people maybe take as a joke about and [that’s why they] whistle in a great stadium like this. My conscience is very clear. I already explained [what happened], and I do not have to give more explanations.”
