LONDON- After the disastrous final for Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius who made two major blunders that helped Real Madrid lift their third consecutive title of the Champions league on May 19. It has now been revealed that the keeper suffered a concussion during the match which could have affected his performance, US doctors said on Monday.
Karius was widely blamed for his team lost, with Madrid taking the title with a 3-1 win. Five days later after the defeat, Liverpool decided to take the keeper to a couple of specialist.
Dr Ross Zafonte and Lenore Hergret said in a statement, which was issued by Massachusetts General Hospital, said, “After carefully reviewing game film and integrating a detailed history – including his reported present and immediate post-contact subjective symptoms – physical examination and objective metrics, we have concluded that Mr Karius sustained a concussion during the match,”
“Mr Karius’s principal residual symptoms and objective signs suggested that visual spatial dysfunction existed and likely occurred immediately following the event. Additional symptomatic and objectively noted areas of dysfunction also persisted. It could be possible that such deficits would affect performance.”
But the doctors did not give any indication on how Karius suffered the concession but television footage showed Real defender Sergio Ramos barging into Karius early in the second half.
