“We followed the Fifa guidelines. The Fifa doctor OK’d him to remain on the pitch, but he was advised if there was any symptoms then to flag it up right away, and that’s what he did.

“There was no second thoughts in any respect, he was off straightaway. We’ve covered all of the protocols and the FIFA guidelines.”
