‘When I was working with Hector Cuper, we had a training camp in Switzerland [in March 2018],’ Ramzy told OnTime Sports.

‘I was talking to Salah and he told me that Real Madrid had sent him an offer.

‘The offer was really good, but Salah discussed it with me and Mr Cuper, and he decided to stay with Liverpool because he was comfortable there.’

Ramzy wasn’t appointed as Egypt’s assistant manager until Cuper was replaced by Javier Aguirre, but claimed he was at the squad’s training camp as a show of support.

The 2018 Champions League final in Kiev saw Salah leave the pitch in tears after his game was cut short following his shoulder injury.

The incident came about after Ramos grabbed the Egyptian by the arm and pulled him to the ground. Ramos wasn’t punished for the foul on Salah at the time despite throwing most of his weight on the Liverpool man’s shoulder.
