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 www.liverpoolfc.tv: "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."
