magista obra ii yellow Those rules were brought in after several high-profile incidents that attracted considerable criticism of football's attitude to head injuries and they stipulate that all home teams must employ a third 'tunnel doctor' to help team doctors identify concussions and decide whether the player is fit to continue.

They also reinforced the Football Association's protocol that a player should even be removed if a concussion is only suspected, but not necessarily confirmed - what Headway refers to as the principle of 'if in doubt, sit it out'.

"The role of the independent tunnel doctor needs clarifying. How much influence do they have in decisions about whether or not a player is concussed? Why are they not more visible when these decisions are being taken? Are they actually being consulted?

"We would like to see an independent review of the way in which professional football in this country is implementing its own concussion protocols in order to reduce the risk to not just professional athletes, but also to youngsters and amateurs who do not have doctors on the side of the pitch to provide medical support and advice."

Speaking immediately after the match, Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho said he did not know what injury Martial had when he was forced to come off, suggesting it could have been an ankle, knee or head injury.
