Didier Drogba sends lovely tweet to Mohamed Salah after CL final heartbreak

Everyone has been talking about the same two names since last night's drama in the Champions League final: Mohamed Salah and Loris Karius.

It was Karius' two mistakes that cost Liverpool against Real Madrid, with the 24-year-old to blame for Karim Benzema's opener and Gareth Bale's second goal of the night.

But the Reds can also count themselves very unlucky given Salah was forced to retire from the game in the 31st minute.

The Egyptian injured his shoulder under a challenge from Sergio Ramos and couldn't play on, meaning Liverpool were without their best player for most of the game.

It's suspected Salah actually dislocated his shoulder, which Jurgen Klopp says shocked Liverpool's players.

"It doesn't look good," the German said in his post-match interview. "Of course it was a big moment in the game.

"I know if you say something like that after the game it sounds like you're a bad loser but I thought it was a hash challenge.


"It was like wrestling. He fell on his shoulder and it's a really serious injury. The shock of the boys was obvious and we dropped."

Missing this summer's World Cup is now a major concern for Salah who, if he has dislocated his shoulder, faces a race against time to recover.

It's going to be a nervous couple of weeks for the 25-year-old and football supporters are all hoping he's able to represent Egypt in Russia.

Didier Drogba is a huge fan of Salah and he's now tweeted the Liverpool star a short but class message (see below).

"Be strong @MoSalah ❤️," the Chelsea legend wrote.

It would be a great shame to see Salah ruled out of the World Cup following such a special season at Liverpool, but he's confident he'll be back in time and we can only hope that's the case.
