Liverpool defender Daniel Agger will miss the rest of season with a knee injury sustained in his side’s 2-1 loss to West Brom on Saturday.Agger limped off after only 25 minutes at The Hawthorns, and boss Kenny Dalglish revealed it would take two months for the Dane to start training again.
“Daniel has a problem with the tendon behind his knee and won’t be involved again this season,” Dalglish told the club’s official website.
“He’ll be out for a couple of months before he can start training.”
In a further blow for Dalglish’s defensive stocks, right back Glen Johnson will miss up to four weeks after injuring a hamstring eight minutes into the game, and Martin Kelly suffered a setback in his recovery from his own hamstring injury and also faces a lengthy spell out.
“Glen Johnson has a hamstring problem which is usually about three or four weeks and it’s the same for Martin Kelly,” Dalglish said.
Steven Gerrard is still awaiting the all clear to resume after being sidelined with a groin injury since his side’s 3-1 win over Manchester United on March 6.
“We will know about Steven at the end of the week. He will be assessed and we’ll see what the story is,” Dalglish said.
“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.”
