Spain global and Real Madrid center-back Sergio Ramos has said it was Salah who initially held on to him during the memorable Champions League final on May 26 in the Ukrainian capital Kiev that saw Real Madrid claim its third consecutive title.

Liverpool have declined to comment on Karius' situation.

"Sergio Ramos injured Mohamed Salah in the 2018 European Champions League final".

Karius made two huge errors in the match, both of which led to goals for Real Madrid and shattered the hopes of not only the Liverpool players, but the supporters as well.

During the attack of real Madrid Sergio Ramos broke into the penalty area and in trying to be first on the ball, swung from the goalkeeper of "Liverpool".

"After carefully reviewing game film and integrating a detailed history - including his reported present and immediate post-contact subjective symptoms - physical examination and objective metrics, we have concluded that Mr Karius sustained a concussion during the match May 26, 2018".

The German keeper made two decisive blunders in the game which Liverpool ended up paying dearly for.

New Jersey State Trooper stops retired officer who delivered him
Bailly was a four-year rookie when he responded to a home in Piscataway on October 5, 1991, the New Jersey State Police wrote. The retired officer told Patterson he knew the street because 27 years ago he helped deliver a baby on that street.

The collision between the two players came just minutes before Karius' first, and most weird, mistake whereby he rolled to ball at Karim Benzema's feet, with the Frenchman intercepting the ball and scoring Madrid's opener.

The impact was "likely" to have been felt immediately and that it was "possible" the injury "would affect performance". I don't know because he couldn't see the ball. "I am only missing (Roberto) Firmino saying that he got a cold because a drop of my sweat landed on him". Was that luck then, because he couldn't see the ball?

Former Liverpool and England goalkeeper Ray Clemence gave BBC Radio 5 Live some insight into the anguish goalkeepers can feel when they make mistakes in high stakes games like a Champions League final.

The German has had tests in the United States where medics say he suffered from "visual spatial dysfunction".

And Real captain Ramos has gone into detail into the tackle for the first time since the final.

Ex-Liverpool midfielder John Barnes, however, reckons Liverpool fans could find themselves backing Karius again in the future.
