Morocco's Physio Repeatedly Slaps Player After Concussion Injury

A lot has been said about head injuries in football ever since Sergio Ramos' collision with Loris Karius in the Champions League final and Morocco's physio proved he didn't know how to deal with it in their World Cup opener.

Head injuries and sport have been big news over the last few years with American football and rugby leading the charge on dealing with them. Football though has been somewhat lacking.

Lots has been spoken about the issue in the fallout from the Champions League final after it was revealed days later that a collision with Sergio Ramos had led Loris Karius to be concussed before his two mistakes that led to two Real Madrid goals.

It led to many people asking if Liverpool should have taken him off or what could have been done better but apparently Morocco's physio didn't see any of the debate.

When Nordin Amrabat went down during the African side's World Cup opener against Iran on Friday afternoon their physio could only smack him in the face to check what was up with him:

Someone in football really needs to work out some better concussion protocols and quickly before a player actually does themselves some proper damage.

The last thing that the sport needs is physios slapping players in the face, that's just embarrassing.
