Lokeren goalie Boubacar Barry knocks himself out trying to make save (Video)
Don’t ever tell Boubacar Barry what it means to go all out. You know nothing about it. The Lokeren goalkeeper gave a new meaning to the phrase “laying it all on the line” on Sunday toward the beginning of a match against Club Brugge.
As you can see from the video above that 101 Great Goals passed along, Barry dove to try to stop a shot in the fifth minute when he collided with the post and was knocked out cold. According to Belgian news site Knack.be, he suffered a concussion but was later released from the hospital following the horrifying injury. His team went on to lose 2-1.
When we think about goalie as being a dangerous position, we’re usually thinking about a person trying to stand in the way of a scorching shot. Unfortunately, Barry reminded us that blocking shots isn’t the only occupational hazard associated with tending the net.
