Sergio Ramos sat behind Mohamed Salah at the UCL draw and it looked very awkward
Just unbelievable planning.
Whoever was in charge of seating at the 2018/19 Champions League draw produced what looked to be a moment of awkwardness by seating Mohamed Salah and Sergio Ramos in close proximity to one another.
The Real Madrid defender ended the Liverpool forward’s Champions League final in May with a tackle, of sorts, that dislocated Salah’s shoulder.
And with both players in attendance for various award nominations, they ended up almost as close as they did in the 2017/18 final, which Real Madrid won 3-1.
Whoever did the seating arrangements at the draw didn’t miss a trick by seating Salah right in front of Ramos. 😳— Tony Barrett (@TonyBarrett) August 30, 2018

Ramos sat directly behind Salah there lol bet that’s not awkward— Sabah (@Sabah07) August 30, 2018
Awkward indeed. While Salah has remained quiet on the issue, his manager Jurgen Klopp has been critical of Ramos, with Ramos responding by pointing to Klopp’s defeats record in cup finals.

Furthermore, Ramos was awarded the Champions League defender of the season award at the draw.
And after he’d received his award and headed back to his seat, he did something which caught the eye of just about everybody.
On his way back to his seat, Ramos gave a soft rub on Mohamed Salah's shoulder, the Liverpool man bravely sitting in the seat in front— AS English (@English_AS) August 30, 2018
Yep. Definitely awkward.
