Injury Problems Mount For Liverpool As Daniel Agger Is Ruled Out For The Season

Anfield defensive crisis grows as Martin Kelly and Glen Johnson out for another four weeks.

Liverpool are facing another defensive crisis as Daniel Agger will not play again this season because of a knee injury the club confirmed today.

Full-backs Glen Johnson and Martin Kelly will also be out for up to four weeks meaning they will only be back for the last two games.

The news is a massive blow for manager Kenny Dalglish who is already waiting the results of the scans for captain Steven Gerrard.

The 30-year-old was due to play against West Brom last Saturday but suffered a recurrence of the groin injury that required surgery a month ago.

But it is not all bad news for Dalglish as Fabio Aurelio, Jonjo Shelvey and David Ngog are back in training.

“Daniel has a problem with the tendon behind his knee and won’t be involved again this season,” Dalglish told the club’s website.

“He’ll be out for a couple of months before he can start training.

“Glen Johnson has a hamstring problem which is usually about three or four weeks and it’s the same for Martin Kelly.

“We will know about Steven at the end of the week. He will be assessed and we’ll see what the story is.

“It’s disappointing for the players because they want to play in every game. We’re getting towards the end of the season but if you’re injured you’re injured.

“We feel for them but the most important people at the football club are the ones who are fit and able to play. We have to get on with what we’ve got.

“Fabio Aurelio and Jonjo Shelvey are training again and David Ngog had a game for the reserves on Monday. So we’ve lost some but we’ve got a few back.”
