Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has returned a suspected positive test for covid and will miss Sunday’s Premier League game against Chelsea.
The 54-year-old is experiencing mild symptoms and is isolating, so his assistant Pep Lijnders will take charge for the visit to Stamford Bridge.
On Friday Klopp said three players had tested positive for covid.
In a statement, Liverpool said there had been no further cases among the playing squad since then.
However, three backroom staff have returned suspected positive tests.
