Groin injury sidelines Gerrard

2011-04-08 11:58

Liverpool - Liverpool skipper Steven Gerrard has been ruled out for the rest of the season after suffering a groin injury, manager Kenny Dalglish confirmed on Friday.

Gerrard had recently returned to training following a groin operation in early March but broke down last Friday after sustaining a similar injury, dealing a blow to Liverpool's push for a European place.

Dalglish said Liverpool were still trying to pinpoint the exact cause of the latest injury following a week of assessments.

"We still don't know definitively what the problem is," Dalglish told a press conference ahead of Liverpool's match with Manchester City on Monday.

"We will wait to get a precise answer from the people that he has to see but he won't be involved again this season."

News of Gerrard's injury is another major headache for Dalglish, who is already without defender Daniel Agger for two months after he damaged knee tendons against West Bromwich Albion last month.

    Maybe time Raul Meireles took his place, scored more goals in the season in any case

    This could really hamper the revival - VERY bad news ! We are already missing Johnson & Kelly, so we have no right back Agger, our best central defender, also going to miss the rest of the season through injury So the defence is basically in crisis at the moment - if we move Carra to play right back, it means Skrtel will have to partnered by Soto in the middle - not exactly confidence inspiring is it ? Raul doing a good job so far, but it's time for the likes of Joe Cole & Jovanovic to be given a chance & hopefully they take it !
