Liverpool have confirmed that Jurgen Klopp will be back in the dugout for Sunday’s FA Cup third-round clash with Shrewsbury Town.
The Reds manager had been missing from action since testing positive for Covid-19 on New Year’s Day – missing Liverpool’s 2-2 draw with Chelsea as a result.

He met up with the squad at the team hotel on Sunday morning.
While Klopp is back, his assistant Pepijn Lijnders is still in isolation after also testing positive.
Liverpool also confirmed on Sunday that defender, Trent Alexander-Arnold tested positive for Covid-19 and will miss their Sunday’s FA Cup third-round tie.
He becomes the latest Liverpool player to miss a match due to a positive test, after Allison, Roberto Firmino and Joel Matip were all absent for last week’s 2-2 draw with Chelsea.
