Agger confirms four-week injury lay-off

10 January 2014 11:44

Liverpool defender Daniel Agger faces a month out of action with a calf injury, he revealed on Friday.

The Denmark international suffered the setback during Liverpool's 2-0 FA Cup victory over League One outfit Oldham last Sunday.

Agger was already ruled out of this weekend's Premier League visit to Stoke City as a result, but is now set for a longer period on the sidelines and will miss the crucial Merseyside derby with Everton on January 28, while his involvement in the home fixture with leaders Arsenal on February 8 is in doubt.

Losing Agger comes as a blow to manager Brendan Rodgers, who is down to two fit centre-backs in the form of Martin Skrtel and Kolo Toure, as Mamadou Sakho continues his recovery from a hamstring injury sustained in the 2-1 defeat at Chelsea on December 29.

"Disappointed with my injury! But I hope to be back strong within 4 weeks! Thanks for all the supporting tweets," Agger posted on Twitter.

The 29-year-old has been linked with an Anfield exit during the January transfer window, with Serie A side Napoli - coached by former Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez - thought to be among his suitors, although Agger has refuted those claims.

Agger has made 13 appearances for Liverpool this season in all competitions.
