Richard Keys destroys Leeds United medical staff after Robin Koch incident

Richard Keys has destroyed the medical staff at Leeds United for their dealing with Robin Koch on Sunday afternoon.

The German international suffered a heavy head blow in the first-half, but was allowed to play on before being forced off minutes later with concussion symptoms.

Keys has unloaded in a stinging rant, insisting that the medical staff at Leeds failed their player and another blow could have been fatal.

Writing on his personal Twitter account on Tuesday morning, Keys singled out the medical staff for their failings.

“The rules didn’t fail Koch,” he wrote. “Leeds medical staff did.

“There’s no way he should’ve been allowed to play on. A second blow to the head could’ve been fatal. Concussion subs are needed – but clubs must also get better at protecting players.”

The only thing that matters in this debate is how Koch is feeling after the heavy blow he took over the weekend.

Bielsa confirmed in his press conference this morning (22 February) that the German was “perfect” which was brilliant news.

Keys often likes to take his arguments to the extreme, as that is how he can stay relevant on his social media despite few ever agreeing with him.

Koch will need to sit out against Liverpool and could return for the Spurs game, although it is more likely that he won’t be back until the trip to Leicester.

Thankfully, he should be fine and with some rest and healing time, will be back to his best within no time and ready to show up once again.
