Karius '100 per cent' influenced by concussion - Klopp

Grant SmithJul 10, 2018

Championship rivals Sheffield United are also keen, according to the Liverpool Echo, although the Reds are unlikely to sanction a loan until manager Jurgen Klopp has assessed his progress during pre-season.

"So from my side everything is fine".

Talk of a concussion for Karius puzzled Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois, who revealed that when he was concussed by Alexis Sanchez, he couldn't see the ball, and questioned how Karius was able to make two good saves while concussed. "He called me and said he came from a doctor, he told me: 'Your goalkeeper had a concussion'".

"If Jurgen doesn't think he is capable of bouncing back from that of course he will have to go into the market and get another goalkeeper but Jurgen knows him better than me".

'He was influenced by that knock, that is 100 per cent.

The goalkeeper had been elbowed by Sergio Ramos prior to his first mistake, and tests after the final found that he displayed 26 of the 30 signs of concussion. What the rest of the world is making of it, I don't care.

Fabinho and Naby Keita were both handed debuts as Liverpool started pre-season with a routine 7-0 win over Chester on Saturday. It's really not important what the people say.

"We need to cool down the whole situation and play football and work on our weaknesses, use our strengths and everything will be good". We do not use it as an excuse.

The summer transfer window is open and managers are working hard on their transfer targets so we'll bring you all the latest gossip from around the globe.

A further six caps followed but now a Championship loan could be in the offing for Woodburn, however Klopp wants to assess his progress and needs some of his younger players during pre-season while some of the club's worldwide stars recover from World Cup duty.

"The easy thing to do is put a cross through his name and bin him but you have to remember he took Liverpool to the Champions League final".

"For me, it is 100 per cent the explanation [for his performance]", said Klopp.
