FIFPro is running a campaign about how players should deal with concussion.

Eugenie Le Sommer is helping promote an educational video made by FIFPro to raise awareness about concussion among female footballers.

“I have seen concussed players asking to remain on the pitch,” Olympique Lyonnais and France striker Le Sommer says. “That should never be allowed.”

Petr Cech and Álvaro Pereira are also helping FIFPro educate their colleagues in professional football on what to do when they suspect a team mate or opponent of having a concussion.

Le Sommer, Cech and Pereira are ambassadors of FIFPro’s campaign video which will be shown in players’ dressing rooms around the world.
