Concussion: How Premiership is tackling concussion
Head injury experts have been critical of football's approach to head injuries after Karius was found to have suffered concussion during the final, which Liverpool lost 3-1 to Real Madrid.During the game, the 24-year-old German goalkeeper made one of two costly mistakes minutes after the collision with Real defender Ramos.A medical team who assessed Karius at Massachusetts General Hospital, which included leading NFL head injury expert Dr Ross Zafonte, concluded it was "possible" the injury "would affect performance".Dr Willie Stewart, a leading British neurosurgeon who has been at the forefront of improving assessment of head injuries in football and rugby union, said medical teams told BBC Sport they were "handcuffed" by a lack of adequate help.The Scot said: "Football doesn't allow an interchange for a player to be assessed to see if he has a brain injury; doesn't allow significant time for the medics to assess the player; doesn't have a video review of events to be able to say if there was a glancing blow on my goalkeeper's head which I didn't notice."It's unacceptable in 2018 that it should be this way."Premier League rules were also updated in 2014 after Tottenham received criticism for allowing goalkeeper Hugo Lloris to continue playing after losing consciousness.In 2015, the Football Association issued guidelines[/i] about how concussion should be dealt with.
