Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp to miss Sunderland game with appendicitis

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp missed the visit of Sunderland to Anfield on Saturday after coming down with suspected appendicitis.

The German undertook pre-match media duties on Friday but was subsequently taken ill and the club announced he would not be at Anfield for the Premier League fixture.

First-team duties were instead to be overseen by the remaining members of his backroom team, including assistant coaches Zeljko Buvac and Peter Krawietz, first-team development coach Pepijn Lijnders and goalkeeping coach John Achterberg.

The club stated on their website: "Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp will be absent from today's Barclays Premier League fixture against Sunderland at Anfield, after suffering a suspected bout of appendicitis.''
