Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp missed training on Wednesday after being taken to hospital because he was feeling ill, the club has announced.

Klopp, 50, is being assessed by doctors as a "precautionary measure".

"There are currently no plans for Jurgen to remain in hospital beyond his appointment and he will therefore return home this [Wednesday] evening," said a club statement.

"However, he may require further check-ups in the coming days."

Liverpool, currently fifth in the Premier League, play Southampton at Anfield on Saturday.
