Tests reveal Liverpool goalkeeper had concussion during Champions League final

Scans reveal Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius sustained concussion during the Champions League final defeat to Real Madrid in which he made two crucial errors.

Massachusetts General Hospital has confirmed the player underwent assessments five days after the 3-1 loss in Kiev.

Karius is on holiday in the United States but Liverpool's medical staff wanted him to be checked out and a subsequent examination found evidence of concussion, which doctors say could have affected his performance.

The goalkeeper was caught in the head by Sergio Ramos at a corner before Madrid's opening goal, which was the first to be blamed on Karius.

"With Mr Karius's permission we are providing information about his medical situation in an effort to prevent, where possible, the dissemination of incomplete or erroneous information," said a statement from MGH.

Karius was widely blamed for Liverpool's final defeat after his two errors, and Merseyside Police later released a statement saying its officers were aware of "threats" made against him on social media.

The 24-year-old gifted Real the lead when he attempted to launch a quick attack, only for Karim Benzema to thrust a leg out and divert the ball into an empty net.

Karius then allowed a long-range effort from Gareth Bale to evade his grasp in the closing stages.

Liverpool have declined to comment on Karius' situation.

Karius apologises for mistakes in Champions League final

Loris Karius admitted his mistakes had cost Liverpool any chance of winning the Champions League final.

The 24-year-old was in tears at the final whistle in Kiev after the Reds' 3-1 defeat to Real Madrid. The Spanish side's first goal came when Karim Benzema charged down an attempted throw-out by Karius, and the goalkeeper then allowed a long-range Gareth Bale shot to slip through his grasp for the third.

"I lost my team the game," he told talkSPORT.

"I'm sorry for everyone - from the team, from the whole club - that the mistakes cost dearly.

"If I could go back in time, I would. I feel sorry for my team. I know I let them down.

"It's very hard right now but that's the life of a goalkeeper. These goals cost us the title, basically."

Former Reds goalkeeper Ray Clemence said Karius would have to live with his mistakes "for the rest of his life".

Clemence, who was in goal for Liverpool's first three European Cup wins including the 1-0 victory over Real in 1981, told BBC Radio Five Live's Sportsweek programme: "He's made two horrendous errors at vital times in the game and he has to live with that.

"He's got the whole summer to think about it and when you make mistakes in massive games like that they will be with you for the rest of your life, because people will remember them and keep reminding you of them."
