He said on the Sada El-Balad channel: ‘Ramos intentionally injured Mo Salah and should be punished about his actions.
‘I’ve filed a lawsuit and a complaint to FIFA. I’ll ask for compensation, which could exceed €1billion (£873million), for the physical and psychological harm that Ramos gave Salah and the Egyptian people.’
The nature of Salah’s injury is still unclear but Egypt’s medical team are confident he will be available for the World Cup in Russia.
