Rui Patricio ‘okay’ and ‘totally conscious’ after suffering head injury




The game was suspended for more than ten minutes after Patricio collided with teammate Conor Coady at the end of Monday’s game and had to be pulled off the pitch.

“He’s fully aware and remembers what happened,” Nuno said dit of the Portuguese international Patricio after the match.

“We’ve already talked. All these situations when it’s a concussion and the head, we’re all worried. But it’s okay, he’ll recover.

“We talked to the doctor and he told me he would be fine. I think he immediately received good care from the doctors.”

The injury came when Coady’s knee collided with Patricio’s head when they were defending a shot from Liverpool striker Mohammed Salah, whose goal was ruled out for offside.

“I think life is more important,” Jota told Sky Sports. “I hope it’s nothing too serious and obviously I wish him a speedy recovery.”

The win, Liverpool’s second in eight Premier League games, lifts the Reds to sixth in the table while the Wolves remain 13th.
