The Raheem Sterling soap opera took a hilarious twist on Wednesday.
Sterling, who is desperate to leave Liverpool this summer after falling out with manager Brendan Rodgers, had failed to report to training, having phoned in sick.
Reds officials were clearly not convinced that the 20-year-old was genuinely unwell.
The Liverpool Echo hinted that the club may have sent a doctor to his house, as this was the ‘usual procedure’.
Sterling is expected to move to Manchester City this summer.
Chelsea also thought to be interested in the Jamaica-born England starlet, although City are the highest bidder to date.
