‘I feel good and I am back in the race!’ Jurgen Klopp back at Liverpool after surgery

first_img Jurgen Klopp 1 Jurgen Klopp has returned to work with Liverpool less than 48 hours after having his appendix removed.The German was absent from Anfield for Saturday’s 2-2 draw with Sunderland as he was undergoing surgery at Aintree Hospital after becoming ill.But the 48-year-old was back to work at home the following day, reviewing the weekend’s game, and decided he wanted to be involved in Monday’s preparations for the FA Cup fourth-round replay against West Ham at the club’s Melwood training ground.“I feel good and I am back in the race,” said Klopp.“I figured if I feel bad I should stay at home, but I feel good.“If I am not fit then I cannot help here and I would be at home. Everything is okay and we don’t have to talk about this any more.“I am very thankful for our doc (club medic Andy Massey) because he said we should go to hospital – I was not too sure – and the surgeon was great, a season ticket-holder who told me we both didn’t want to see the game, I had the best nurses and everything was okay.“I watched the (Sunderland) game yesterday. I spoke to all my coaches and what I heard before (he saw it) was what I saw afterwards.“It was not necessary to give the points away but that is not something we can change. It makes no difference if you are in a deep sleep or on the bench – you can’t change it any more.“There were a lot of positive things and if you pick out the last 10 minutes it was a really good game; how you should play and we should have scored a few more goals.“How we conceded the goals was not too good, how it is always, but it is not the only information I need to understand what our situation is at this moment.“It is over and in this moment it is easier for me to say we have to carry on.”Klopp will be on the touchline for the trip to Upton Park, although he accepts he will not be his usual highly-animated self in the technical area.“I think I am experienced to know that for me it is not a normal coaching game so I won’t be jumping about,” he said.“I can’t win the game with my emotions outside, I know this, so I can handle it no worries.“I have a few holes in my body so hopefully the water will stay in!”last_img read more
