Loris Karius could play for the first time since the Champions League final as Jurgen Klopp’s men ramp up their pre-season preparations at Chester on Saturday.
The Liverpool goalkeeper has been under the spotlight since his ill-fated performance after suffering concussion in a collision with defender Sergio Ramos, which was initially missed by the club’s medical team: "After four days I got a call from Franz Beckenbauer," Klopp told Liverpoolfc.com. "He called me and said ‘your goalkeeper had a concussion." A decision was then taken to send Karius to visit a head specialist - Dr. Ross Zafonte – in Boston: "I thought it was too late, you cannot check that [but] if you have one, you see it days later. Five days after the final, Loris had 26 of 30 markers for a concussion still. That’s clear." Although Karius is not using the head trauma as an excuse, Klopp believes that it does at least offer an "explanation" as to why his concentration levels uncharacteristically dipped: "He was influenced by that knock, that is 100 per cent."
