JURGEN KLOPP WAS absent from Liverpool’s training session on Wednesday after he was admitted to hospital due to illness.

A club statement reveals that the German coach only went to hospital as a ‘precautionary measure’ and may require further examinations later in the week.

There are no current plans to keep Klopp in the hospital overnight, but it is not known whether he will be well enough to attend his side’s Premier League clash against Southampton in Anfield on Saturday. 

The full statement from the official club website reads:

“Jürgen Klopp has attended a hospital appointment today as a precautionary measure, after feeling ill.

“He is being assessed by doctors and will be absent from training on Wednesday as a result.

“There are currently no plans for Jürgen to remain in hospital beyond his appointment and he will therefore return home this evening; however, he may require further check-ups in the coming days.

“The club urges that the privacy of Jürgen, his family and other patients is respected while attending hospital visits.”
