Liverpool keeper Karius: Ramos has not apologised for elbow

Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius has again discussed his reported concussion in the Champions League final.

Karius started for Liverpool against Real Madrid in May, but made two high-profile mistakes in the 3-1 defeat.

Liverpool later claimed that the goalkeeper had suffered a concussion in the game after a clash with Real captain Ramos, with the Reds having Karius undergo medical tests during the summer break.

Karius has since been sent out on loan to Besiktas, with Alisson arriving at Anfield for £56million to replace him.

But Karius bears no grudges with either Liverpool or Ramos.

Asked whether Ramos had apologised, he told Bild: “No. I don’t think that he has got my number.

“He’s a hard player but I have nothing against him personally. I don’t know whether he did that on purpose, but that doesn’t matter to me in the end. Only one person knows and this is Sergio Ramos.

“I went down and thought: ‘What’s going on now?’ No reaction from the five referees. I felt the adrenaline rushing through my body and thought only about playing on.”

“A concussion was proven, and it harmed my spatial vision. The club asked me to go see a specialist. But again, I won’t use this as an excuse. I performed constantly throughout the whole season, so you can put it this way: under ordinary circumstances I cannot explain those mistakes.”
