We now know one thing about Belgian side Lokeren‘s Ivorian goalkeeper Boubacar Barry, he does not like conceding goals. Barry was so focused on ensuring the ball didn’t go in between the posts that he completely forgot or simply didn’t care that the posts were there. Also that they’re really hard and not made for head-butting.
Five minutes in to Lokeren’s 2-1 defeat to Club Brugge on Sunday this happened. Barry was left unconscious for 2 minutes but thankfully he avoided serious injury. He will have a killer headache this morning but seeing as it’s a Bank Holiday Monday here he won’t be the only one.
Barry’s injury inspired his team-mates to take a 1-0 at half-time. The inspiration then wore off and they conceded two second half goals to lose 2-1. In the end he nutted the post in vain.
If you don’t like seeing people getting knocked out then you might not want to watch this video. It’s pretty all about someone being knocked unconscious. As for Mr Barry, we salute you’re bravery and lack of concern for you’re own safety. That’s what great goalkeepers are made of. Pure high-grade insanity.
