Ramos wrote, “The truth is that I’ve had a tough few weeks. Surgery is always a sporting and emotional break.

“Fortunately, for a few days now I’ve been feeling better but in football and in life, bad luck also plays a role.

“After yesterday’s game, I stayed on to do some work on the pitch and I felt a pinch in my left calf. Today I underwent tests and it was confirmed that I have a muscle injury.

“What hurts most is not being able to help the team in these vital games of the season and not being able to give something back on the pitch for all the love and energy you send me.

“All I can do is speak frankly, work hard and support the team with my soul.”

Liverpool and Real Madrid played in the final of the 2018 Champions League with the Spanish giants emerging 3-1 winners.

Published

on

Real Madrid manager, Carlo Ancelotti, was keen to bring David Luiz to the club this summer, but the club never tabled an offer for the player, Globo reports.

Ancelotti is believed to have made contact with Luiz, who he worked together with at Chelsea.

The 34-year-old became a free agent this summer, having seen his contract with Arsenal expire at the end of June.

However, he has now returned to his native Brazil to sign with Flamengo, putting pen to paper on a 15-month contract.

It ended Luiz’s 15-year playing career in Europe.

But things would have been different if Madrid presented an offer for the experienced centre back.

The LaLiga giants allowed captain Sergio Ramos leave this summer, while Raphael Varane signed for Manchester United.

David Alaba arrived at the Bernabeu on a free transfer over the summer, but the La Liga giants are said to be determined to bring another centre-back to the club in 2022.

Africa’s second round of qualifying for the 2022 World Cup is set to kick off with some notable absentees – Mohamed Salah, among them – after the refusal of British clubs to release players for various matches.

Premier League clubs have led the way in refusing permission for players to head to countries on the British government’s Covid red list, which would require 10 days of quarantine upon their return.

With Egypt one of 17 African countries on the red list, Liverpool superstar Salah will miss this week’s home match against Angola in Cairo but could play in Gabon, which is not on the list, next week.

Quarantine conditions meant he could have been one of several internationals to miss multiple games, said Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp.

“As clubs we cannot do that – not only because we play games in that time, but because without being positive (for coronavirus) they lose 10 days of training,” he said.
