There's A Petition To Replay The Champions League Final Between Liverpool And Real Madrid
Well that didn't take long. In the space of a few hours, a petition has been set up after it was confirmed that Loris Karius suffered concussion after a clash with Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos.
Karius underwent a scan on his head after the collision and the results have come back positive.
ESPN report that the German goalkeeper flew to the USA for a holiday and saw a specialist at Massachusetts General Hospital on May 31, with 26 out of the 30 results suggesting that the incident could have affected his performance.
The petition in question is to replay the Champions League final between Liverpool and Real Madrid after the injuries to Karius became clear.
Ramos' collision with the goalkeeper happened just two minutes before Karius' first mistake in the game, and then his blunder for Bale's long range finish put the game to bed.
Clearly this fan thinks that it would be 'only fair' to play the fixture again.
