Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez returned home on Tuesday after a minor operation to remove kidney stones and is expected to return to work within a couple of days.

The Spaniard was admitted to hospital late on Sunday with the problem but is expected to make a speedy recovery.

"The operation went well and Rafa is now back at home continuing his recovery," a club spokesman said. "He is expected to return to Melwood (training ground) within the next 48 hours."
