"We were meeting with Chris Hughton, coach of Brighton, who I had during my time at Newcastle. That night, I began to notice the pain. I arrived at the hotel and thought they were migraines,"

"During the night I had a brutal headache. The next morning, my vision was blurry. I had my eyes open and I saw double. I had to go to the emergency room and after nine hours there I had a CT scan with neurologists and the test indicated that a vein in my head had collapsed.

"It is a tumour located in a complicated area of the head. It is very rare, it was located behind the eye, that is why I now wear a patch."

Liverpool have since released a statement wishing their former player a speedy recovery.

"Wishing you a full and speedy recovery, Jose. Our thoughts are with you and your family." they wrote on Twitter.
