Liverpool target Thibaut Courtois hits at Loris Karius over concussion claim


The Chelsea goalkeeper has insisted the errors made by Loris Karius were all-out effort rather than being lost

Thibaut Courtois has refused to support the claim that Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius was concussed which actuated his double-blunder during the Champion League final.

Karius was caught elbowed by Real Madrid's captain Sergio Ramos two minute before his first error where he threw the ball directly into Karim Benzema's path to score the opener after which he parried Gareth Bale's outside shot into his own net putting the Los blancos on a 3-1 83rd minute lead.

Following a scan underwent by the Liverpool goalie Staff at the Boston hospital found that Karius suffered concussion when he collided with Real's captain Ramos.

But Chelsea No.1 goalie Courtois who has been linked with move to Anfield this summer doubted the concussion claims, pointing out the fact at the middle of his same experience that Karius was able to make two impressive stops even after the collision with Sergio Ramos.

"It happened to me with Alexis Sanchez - I had a concussion and I couldn't see the ball so after 20 minutes I went out of the game because I couldn't see the ball," Courtois said during Belgium's media day. 

"I feel sorry for what happened with him, but to blame it on concussion that he made those mistakes - he also made two amazing saves. So that was luck then? I don't know because he couldn't see the ball.

"It's unfortunate for him to have made those mistakes but if you have concussion you will leave the game or the doctors will tell you look you cannot see clearly anymore you must leave the game.

"If they want to say it's because of that, it's OK. He said after the game he made two mistakes, I think everyone will accept that.

"It can happen as a goalkeeper but to blame it on a concussion now, I find it strange. But if medics says that from Boston it's OK."
