Some fans seem to think Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos has ruined Mohamed Salah after his shocking miss from close range against Leicester City.
Roberto Firmino’s initial shot was parried right into Salah’s path for what looked a simple tap-in, but the Egypt international somehow put it just wide.
Having scored 44 goals in all competitions last season, one would’ve thought that kind of finish was bread and butter for Salah, but he didn’t attack it with his usual confidence and composure.
It’s worth noting Salah seemed affected by that injury he picked up in the Champions League final last season, with Ramos fouling him early on and forcing him off through injury.
The pair were then reunited at the Champions League group stage draw this week, with Ramos seen tapping the LFC man on the shoulder in what was probably meant to be a friendly gesture but what some took to be a bit of a dig.

These fans now think Salah’s miss today is down to his confidence being affected by Ramos breaking him last season. Sounds a bit much if you ask us, but there you go…
How long do we leave it before we decide Ramos has ruined Salah’s remaining career?

Ramos's touch on Salah's shoulder has completely broken the man. Can't even finish tap-ins anymore.

I'm so angry at Salah!. Don't see him getting up to 20 goals this season tbh, I think Sergio Ramos took his finishing or something!

Mo Salah, clearly shaken by being in the presence of Sergio Ramos the other day, puts wide after a rebound falls kindly for him.
