Liverpool have been rocked by the news that Jermaine Pennant requires surgery on a stress fracture of his right tibia and faces 10 weeks on the sidelines.

The winger limped out of the Reds´ Champions League defeat at Besiktas on Wednesday night and the club have confirmed he had been carrying a problem for almost the whole of this season.

He will go under the knife this weekend. Club spokesman Ian Cotton said on the Reds´ official website: "For the last eight weeks Jermaine has undergone intensive treatment at Melwood between matches for the injury."
