“He will want to play in such a big game. As a team, you don’t want to be without your best players.
“But, come on, where’s the thought process in defending the players?”
The former West Ham and Norwich star added: “You can see De Vrij waving in front of his face as if he’s either blurred vision or a little dizzy. Surely that’s enough to let you know that something isn’t right?
“There is a problem that we have in football, about whether players are adamant about moving on, rather than taking it out of their hands. I don’t like seeing it.
“There needs to be a big cultural change. We have to be concerned with the welfare of the players, rather than how important the rest of the half is.”
Some viewers also questioned the decision on Twitter.
One person wrote: “I wonder what shocking rules Inter have. That guy should be off the field.”
Another said: “Concussion protocol in football is a disgrace.”
