Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp was forced to miss training today after he fell ill and had to check in to the hospital. The situation, though, is not considered serious and Klopp is expected to be released later today and may be able oversee tomorrow’s training session.

Klopp is reportedly feeling better, and there is no suggestion surgery will be required—though in 2016 it was when the manager was forced to miss a game against Sunderland due to appendicitis. He will, however, miss attending a team function that was scheduled for tonight.

“Jürgen Klopp has attended a hospital appointment today as a precautionary measure, after feeling ill,” read a statement released by the club in response to news that Klopp had been hospitalised. “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.”
