Jürgen Klopp missed training on Wednesday after the Liverpool manager was admitted to hospital having felt unwell. Klopp has undergone checks by medical staff and will be released this evening so will not require an overnight stay.
The full squad returned to Melwood from international duty to train late on Wednesday afternoon but it was without Klopp, who by then was already at hospital.
“He is being assessed by doctors and will be absent from training on Wednesday as a result,” said a statement from Liverpool. “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.”
Liverpool face Southampton on Saturday but there is no indication yet when Klopp, who is scheduled to face the media on Friday for his pre-match press conference, will return to training or whether he will be in charge at the weekend.
