Liverpool Hurting – Lallana Out for 6 Weeks

Liverpool’s new £25 million summer signing is now out for six weeks with a knee ligament injury. Adam Lallana damaged his lateral collateral ligament – the LCL – in what seemed like an innocuous challenge.

He will miss games against his former club, Southampton, Manchester City and Tottenham.

The six week lay-off is depressing enough for Lallana who was participating in just his fourth training session since his move to Liverpool.

He and the majority of England’s World Cup contingent joined the squad last Monday.

Manager Brendan Rodgers will be disappointed his reshaped side will be denied the services of a key component in the early weeks of the season. He was his first and priority signing of the summer.

Lallana will now be targeting full fitness in time for the start of Liverpool’s Champions League campaign.
