Mohamed Salah withdrew injured from the FA Cup final between Liverpool and Chelsea after half an hour, with an apparent physical problem in his groin. The Egyptian suffered the injury 14 days before the Champions League final against Real Madrid in Paris. Diogo Jota replaced him.

Salah’s problem seemed to be with his groin and he was able to walk off the pitch on his own feet, escorted by the assists, who continued to inquire about the player’s condition once he reached the bench.

Salah, 29, has made 48 appearances for Liverpool this season, scoring 30 goals, as well as appearing in all seven African Cup of Nations games between December and January.

The attacker has expressed his desire to face Real Madrid since before the whites eliminated Manchester City in the semifinals, due to the desire for revenge for the lost final in 2018. Liverpool not only lost that Champions League, but Salah hardly had any influence in the same due to an injury in the first part in a set with Sergio Ramos.
