>Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius was suffering from concussion when he made two terrible errors in the Champions League final defeat to Real Madrid after he was hit by an elbow from Sergio Ramos.
>Karius was ordered to go for scan while on holiday in America last week as Liverpool’s medical staff were concerned about his wellbeing, where it was discovered he had indeed been concussed.
>Karius was caught in the head following a collision with Real defender Ramos in the minutes before inexplicably throwing the ball straight to Karim Benzema, who opened the scoring for the Spanish side.
>Ramos was not punished for the incident, in which he collided with the unprotected goalkeeper, although television pictures did show Karius sitting on the floor, holding his head in the aftermath of the clash, indicating to match officials that he had been elbowed in the face.
>It has since emerged that Liverpool’s medical staff were so concerned about what happened afterwards, that they feared he had taken a blow that was hard enough for him to suffer a concussion and a hospital in the USA have confirmed that was the case.
