(Video) ‘Jurgen is Jurgen’ – Pep Lijnders provides Klopp COVID update ahead of Chelsea clash

Posted by

Pep Lijnders explained that head coach Jurgen Klopp was feeling ‘mild symptoms’ of COVID-19 in his pre-match preview of Liverpool’s impending meeting with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

The Dutchman has taken over first-team duties for the 54-year-old who recently tested positive for the virus alongside Joel Matip, Alisson Becker and Bobby Firmino.

It’s a loss that will be undoubtedly keenly felt by the Merseysiders ahead of what is a pivotal fixture for both sides in the wider context of the title race.

Nonetheless, we’ve no doubt it will motivate the club even more to produce a performance capable of cheering up the manager at home.
