Didi Hamann slams Mohamed Salah for Real Madrid tweet
Former Liverpool midfielder Didi Hamann has slammed Mohamed Salah for tweeting about Real Madrid after they beat Manchester City in the Champions League.
The Reds will face Madrid on May 28 in a repeat of the 2018 final after a dramatic week of semi-finals.
Liverpool ran out 5-3 winners over Villarreal on aggregate, while Los Blancos snatched victory from Manchester City with a 6-5 aggregate scoreline.
Salah admitted earlier this week he wanted to face Madrid in the final after having to go off injured in 2018 following a Sergio Ramos challenge.
The Egypt international watched on from the bench as the La Liga giants won the game 3-1 and their 13th European Cup overall.
As soon as Madrid were confirmed winners on Wednesday, Salah sent out a defiant message of ‘We have a score to settle’.
That didn’t please Hamann, who thinks the time for talking is after the game.
He told Sky Sports: “I saw the tweet and I’m not a big fan of it, I’ve got to say. What happened was unfortunate, I’m not sure it was Ramos’ intention to injure him.
“Obviously he pulled him down, it was unfortunate he had to come off.
“But as we know it took one or two goalkeeping mistakes [from Loris Karius] to swing the game into Real Madrid’s favour.
“I always prefer when players keep quiet, they can talk after the game. But I understand where he’s coming from. He said before the game he would rather play Madrid, he’s got that now so let’s hope he has a cool head.”
Salah has been one of Liverpool’s star performers this campaign and they still have a historic quadruple in their sights.
They’re into the Champions League and FA Cup final and sit one point behind City in the Premier League with four games to go.
Manager Jurgen Klopp signed a new contract extension last week and it’ll keep him at Anfield until 2026 at least.
Liverpool return to action on Saturday evening against Tottenham Hotspur and they’ll go top with a victory.
City welcome Newcastle United to the Etihad Stadium on Sunday and will then leapfrog Liverpool if they earn all three points.
