Rib fracture sidelines Agger

Published Add your comment

Liverpool defender Daniel Agger could be out for up to four weeks after fracturing a rib in Sunday's 4-0 Barclays Premier League defeat at Tottenham.

The Denmark international sustained the injury when he fell heavily in the first half and he had to be substituted before half-time. However, there are contrasting reports on the extent of the injury.

"Daniel has got a fractured rib, so he's struggling a bit," Reds manager Kenny Dalglish told However, Agger's agent Per Steffensen told "It's the worst possible news. He has broken two ribs, and he must keep still for four weeks,"

Steffensen added on "Daniel is way down now and I certainly sympathise with him.

"He will miss the two (international) matches against Cyprus and Portugal and there is a match against Manchester United he also misses.

"It's insanely annoying."
