Liverpool loanee Taiwo Awoniyi suffers concussion

Mainz 05's Taiwo Awoniyi is stretchered off after sustaining an injury during the Bundesliga match between 1. FSV Mainz 05 and FC Augsburg at Opel Arena on June 14, 2020 in Mainz, Germany.

Liverpool forward Taiwo Awoniyi, currently on loan at Mainz, suffered a concussion in their 1-0 Bundesliga defeat to Augsburg on Sunday and was taken to hospital.

The 22-year-old collided with Augsburg defender Felix Uduokhai and was carried off the pitch on a stretcher.

"Our striker Taiwo Awoniyi suffered a concussion ... and is spending the night in hospital as a precautionary measure," Mainz said on Twitter.

Awoniyi, who has scored one goal in 12 league appearances for Mainz this season, has never played for Liverpool and has also had loan spells at Frankfurt, NEC Nijmegen, Excelsior Mouscron and Gent.
