Salah's former coach: "Even as a boy, he was strong physically and mentally."

Mohamed Salah will not have the opportunity to take revenge directly on Sergio Ramos for a shoulder injury in the 2018 Champions League final, but it is certain that the goal (s) and placement in the semifinals would be a much better way to do that than a new incident between the two players.

Ramos will not be able to play in the upcoming duel between the Spanish and English giants, who last met in the Champions League final in 2018 when the Spaniard knocked down the Egyptian and dislocated his shoulder, which forced the Liverpool striker to be replaced after only half an hour.

Real won the game 3: 1, and the man who coached Salah as a 14-year-old, in an exclusive interview for Madrid's AS, pointed out that he will never forget what Ramos did to him. "Salah will never forget the incident with Ramos.

I cried when I saw how crazy and angry he was. It was an extremely important match for him after a fantastic season," said Hamdi Nooh, who coached the Egyptian goalscorer in El Mokawloon. The Liverpool striker wanted to continue the game despite the injury, but he was not allowed to.

"He is a great professional and a player who behaves flawlessly. He is an inspiration to many ... People in Egypt celebrate the goals he gives for Liverpool and they pray for him. Salah has become a national icon representing the whole country and everyone supports him in every game he plays"

Nooh also spoke about the beginnings of Mohammad Salah. "Even as a boy, he was strong physically and mentally. Those qualities helped him become a fast footballer. He tried to concentrate on positive things, but he also worked hard to improve his weaknesses to become a better player."

"He lived far away from the field where we played and every day he had to make a great effort to come to training "

Salah played as a defender

Interestingly, one of the best strikers in the world played as a defender in his childhood "True, Salah was a left-back in my team, as he was the fastest.

He used his speed to score goals, but he worked great with his teammates." "Especially with Mohamed Adel Ab Hattab(he did not make a notable career) "They played really well together and Mohamed assisted him for a large number of goals."

"For two years he was the top scorer with 25-30 goals in the season. He also played with Mohamed Elneny, who is now at Arsenal," recalled the first coach of the Egyptian national team. The man who taught Salah his first football steps believes that his player could leave Anfield soon.

"I think it could happen if he gets a better offer, but that's just my opinion. He's unique and his family is everything in the world." As for the quarterfinal duel between Real and Liverpool, Hamdi Nooh predicted: "Both of them have the best players in the world and I enjoy watching them. I am a fan of both clubs, but in this case, I would like Salah to score and win."
