Liverpool winger, Mohammed Salah has reportedly stopped fasting for three days in the ongoing Ramadan.
Ruben Pons, a Spanish physiotherapist, who works with the Liverpool star, revealed that Salah had stopped fasting, following a prescribed schedule ahead of the big game.
“As far as I know in Marbella, he practiced Ramadan, but a plan was established for these important days,” he said on the El Transistor programme on radio station Onda Cero.
“On Thursday, Friday and the day of the match he will suspend his fasting, so it will not affect him.
“After the final he will take it up again.”
Al Masry al Youm, an Egyptian paper reports that the player’s family will sacrifice three calves before the final, as a tradition to bless Salah for a vital match.
Liverpool, who are chasing their sixth Champions League glory, will battle twelve-time winners, Real Madrid for the trophy in Kiev, Ukraine on Saturday.
