Aurelio injury blow for Reds

Published Add your comment

Fabio Aurelio is unlikely to be fit in time for the start of the Premier League season, according to Liverpool boss Rafael Benitez.

The 27-year-old Brazilian left-back ruptured his Achilles tendon during a Champions League tie against Dutch outfit PSV Eindhoven in April.

Benitez told the club´s website "Fabio isn´t fit. It could be another month before he recovers. We knew it would be a long time when he got injured. He is improving, but it is not easy when you have this kind of injury."
