The heartbreaking reaction as injury cruelly ends Mo Salah's Champions League final
If Liverpool are going to win their sixth Champions League title, they're going to have to do it the hard way after their top scorer and talisman, Mo Salah, was forced to leave the pitch in Kiev after suffering a cruel injury.
As you can see below, the Egyptian fell awkwardly following a challenge from Sergio Ramos and he was replaced by Adam Lallana on 31 minutes.
Before leaving the field, Cristiano Ronaldo had a comforting word with the Liverpool attacker - of course, Ronaldo was forced off with an injury in Portugal's Euro 2016 final against France - but having scored 44 goals in 51 games this season, Salah's injury is such a cruel way for him to end his superb season in a Liverpool shirt.
Here's hoping that the PFA Players' Player of the Year will be fully fit for the World Cup.
Liverpool fans will be praying that his injury can galvanise Klopp's side in the second because they face a massive 45 minutes against the defending champions in Kiev.

Mo Salah's evening ends after just 30 minutes and in tears.
Not the way his season should have ended.
He makes way for Adam Lallana as his shoulder injury is too much to bear. #RMAvLIV pic.twitter.com/MNWIvmH4vW

Heartbreaking to see Mo Salah leave the Champions League final. Brutal blow for Liverpool after a promising start. Here’s hoping the shoulder injury is something Salah can overcome in time for the World Cup.

How unnecessary is this, Ramos could & definitely should have released Salah's arm, obviously no idea just how bad the injury is but it could have been a lot worse. #UCLfinal pic.twitter.com/VnfTixuOEz
