Sergio Ramos Criticizes Jurgen Klopp as UCL Final Row Continues

Sergio Ramos fires back at final failure Jurgen Klopp

The Real Madrid captain was embroiled in controversy in the final in May after his tackle on Mo Salah left the Egyptian global injured.

Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp spoke to reporters today, and refused to be drawn on rumours linking reported Rangers target Dominic Solanke with a loan exit from Anfield before the end of the month, as quoted by the Liverpool Echo.

"Some of us have been operating at a very high level for many years, not sure he can say the same".

In his last six finals, Klopp has lost all of them - the latest being the 3-1 defeat in the Champions League final against 13-time champions Real Madrid.

An attribute Gomez displayed during the game was his ability to play it out from the back - a trait that is extremely useful in Jurgen Klopp's possession-based setup.

That challenge injured the Egyptian international's shoulder, forcing him to be substituted while in tears, with many pundits and Liverpool fans claiming that Ramos intentionally injured Salah.

Ramos had a rather strong response when asked about Klopp's views on the matter.

It should also be noted that the Real Madrid number four did indeed hit Loris Karius with a flailing elbow two minutes before the goalkeeper threw that elusive football to Karim Benzema's feet.

Ramos then laughed off these accusations, saying that Liverpool were making "too much of a big deal" out of the incident.

Costa then proceeds to share a few words with Ramos while he is down injured on the floor.

He adds a new dimension to Klopp's attack as he offers incisive passing and the ability to take on opposition midfielders easily.

Whether Klopp yet again chooses to respond remains to be seen.

"It was ruthless. I don't think Mo would have always got injured in that situation, this time it was unlucky, but it is an experience that we can not have".
