Ruud Gullit Pinpoints The 'Stupidity' Of Mo Salah During Ramos Incident

Ruud Gullit Pinpoints The 'Stupidity' Of Mo Salah During Ramos Incident

Long after you'd have thought everyone had their fill of analysing that Sergio Ramos tackle on Liverpool's Mo Salah, Dutch footballing legend Ruud Gullit has shared his alternative view of proceedings that night.

Sustaining an injury in a collision that would ultimately force him off the pitch in Kiev last May, although varying degrees of anger were directed toward Ramos for his tackle on Salah, few if any laid the blame for that incident at the Liverpool man's door.

That was, until, Gullit got involved. Speaking tonight on beIN SPORTS, the former AC Milan man all but argued that Salah was asking for it.

"It was Mo Salah's own fault, he was stupid," Gullit argued.

"I think it was stupid what he did. I think he tried to muscle [Ramos], gave him all the opportunity to turn him around ... ya, I don't blame Ramos for that no."

Purely for the purposes of provocation? Who knows?

The former Ballon d'Or winner would certainly seem to be in the minority with this view of the tackle, however. Up until now, most have sided with the notion that Mo Salah was the unfortunate victim of Ramos' cynicism.

Tonight's incident during Real Madrid's Champions League tie against Viktoria Plzen certainly didn't shine a positive light on the Spaniard.
