“Completely fine”. That is how Jurgen Klopp described himself after spending a good number of hours in a hospital on Wednesday, feeling unwell back then.
I am really completely fine. It is not that someone should think I have to go back into hospital tomorrow
the Liverpool manager told reporters ahead of his team’s game against Southampton.
I told the players that the doctor said the only thing that can kill me is if we lose football games! That’s it
the German joked, revealing what he told his players on Thursday, when he returned to training, having missed the one a day earlier.
It was nothing. It is like it is sometimes. People think: ‘Oh, that’s it.’ I went there and they said: ‘Okay, all good’. For this they need a little bit of time. You don’t go in, take your temperature and you go again. They have a lot of machines. But I knew from the first second that I had nothing, unfortunately I was not the only one. Afterwards, everybody knew it!
Klopp said, having… paid the price for being one of the most recognizable persons in Liverpool.
