Daniel Agger Suffers Freak Injury

Brendan Rodgers has been left sweating on the fitness of Daniel Agger after the defender suffered a freak injury while training in the gym

The Dane hurt his ribcage during a workout on Sunday and had to be withdrawn from the Reds squad to face Swansea on Monday night. 

After the 2-2 draw at the Liberty Stadium, Rodgers admitted he’s unsure over how long his star centre-back will be out of action for.

“He had a real freak incident in the gym."

"Just before he was coming out to train, he overstretched trying to prevent a dumbbell falling on his foot."

"We are waiting to see if that settles down over the next few days."

"If it doesn’t, we have got ample replacements.That is why we brought in extra players.”

Rodgers also lost midfield playmaker Philippe Coutinho with a shoulder injury, and the manager revealed that the Brazilian will need a scan.
