Klopp: Goalscorer Wijnaldum overcame severe illness to star in victory

Jurgen Klopp has revealed Georginio Wijnaldum was so ill with "diarrhoea and vomiting" in the days leading up to Liverpool's 3-0 victory over Bournemouth, that he was not even with the team at their hotel on Friday night, Goal.com reported.

Wijnaldum scored a brilliant goal against the Cherries, lobbing a beautiful effort over Bournemouth goalkeeper Artur Boruc to give his side a 2-0 advantage in the contest.

"[Wijnaldum] didn't sleep in the team hotel last night. He had diarrhoea and vomiting two nights earlier so he couldn't come to the team hotel."
