A doctor at the United States has revealed that Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius sustained a concussion during last month’s Champions League final defeat by Real Madrid.
The 24-year-old collided with Sergio Ramos during the early stages of the first half of the final match before he committed a blunder by passing the ball to Karim Benzema to score Real Madrid’s first goal.
Tests were carried out at a hospital in Boston where the German is currently spending his holiday.
According to Dr Ross Zafonte, it was possible that the impact of the concussion was felt immediately which would have likely affected his performance afterwards.
Dr Zafonte believes that the German suffered a visual spatial dysfunction, a process which hampers a person’s ability to process visual information about where objects are in space.
Liverpool equalised through Sadio Mane, before Gareth Bale put the Spaniards ahead with an overhead kick and then netted the third when Karius let a shot from long range slip through his hands.
Could this be Karius’s way of exonerating himself?
