Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp beats the clock to get back to coaching
Klopp said he was "back in the race"
Within 48 hours of undergoing surgery, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has returned back to work. Klopp fell ill before the match between Liverpool and Sunderland and could not attend his team’s game. Later he had to undergo surgery to remove his appendix.
The Liverpool boss is very excited to be back with the team and is eagerly waiting for his team’s next match. Liverpool will face West Ham in the scheduled FA Cup rematch and this time the boss will be in the dug-out with his boys. The FA Cup fourth round match is going to take place at the Boleyn ground on Tuesday.
In Klopp’s own words, he is “back in the race” and he also added “If I am not fit, then I cannot help here and I would be at home. Everything is OK and we don't have to talk about this anymore.” The German didn’t forget to thank the club medic and the doctor who operated on him.
Hopefully, for the fans, this show of fighting spirit from the manager will not go in vain and the boys of Liverpool will pick up pace to get some decent results.
While speaking about Liverpool’s last match Jurgen said “It was not necessary to give the points away but that is not something we can change.”
A majority of Liverpool supporters protested the hike in ticket prices by walking out of the stadium on the 77th minute of Liverpool’s last match, which ended in a 2-2 draw against Sunderland. The Coach was reluctant to comment on that as he believed that the club was doing everything possible to rectify the situation. The German coach was more than optimistic about having Divock Origi and Philippe Coutinho back in the squad for their next match in the FA cup. There is even a possibility of the injured striker Daniel Sturridge getting back to the squad before their possible FA cup fifth round tie with Blackburn Rovers.
