Following a series of very publicized accidents leading to players suffering concussions during matches, FIFA has launched an investigation into the way footballing medical staff handle players with concussions.

During the World Cup, Mascherano, Alvaro Pereira and Kramer all suffered concussions and were allowed to carry on stirring the world wide criticism of FIFA.

In a statement released yesterday, FIFA announced that it would be carrying out studies on how to best prevent and manage concussions and determine the best way to deal with it on the pitch.

FIFA would be partnering with the University Hospital of Zurich and the studies would be supervised by FIFA’s chief medical officer, Jiri Dvorak
