Giefer loses month's memory

Bayer Leverkusen goalkeeper Fabian Giefer has revealed he cannot remember anything about the last month after being concussed in the weekend's 2-0 defeat to Mainz.

Giefer needed treatment after clashing with Mainz's Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting in the 84th minute of the game and, although he carried on through to the end, he was taken to a local hospital after the match where he was kept in for observation overnight.

After being discharged yesterday, Giefer has complained of being left with a significant void in his memory.

"I have a complete mental blank," he told the Express newspaper. "I could not even remember how we played. I cannot remember our preparation for the game, the hotel in Mainz or even our training camp in Zillertal. I have lost one month's memory and that is pretty scary."

Giefer was selected by Leverkusen coach Robin Dutt ahead of David Yelldell, who had become first choice following an injury to Rene Adler.

His place in the Leverkusen team next weekend against Werder Bremen should not be in any doubt due to the concussion, but it may be due to his performance. Giefer was at fault for one of the Mainz goals, although he says he cannot remember that either.

"I don't know anything about my mistake," he added.
