Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has said he "feels really good" on his return to work after he was admitted to hospital earlier this week.

The German underwent a series of checks before being discharged on Wednesday evening.

"I feel really good. I am 50 now - maybe I need to get used to it but I've been twice already in a British hospital," he said at his press conference to preview Saturday's match against Southampton.

"The NHS is not as bad as you think. I am not ill, which is kind of good news.

"You should not experience as a person in public to go to a hospital - it was not a marketing thing. I had people shouting 'Klopp is in hospital, did you see him?'"
