Agger Out For Many Weeks

The injury to Liverpool centre- half Daniel Agger is a long-term one according to manager Roy Hodgson. The 25-year old has not played since September 25 because of an ongoing calf problem and has been told to rest the injury before it gets any worse. Reds boss Hodgson admitted that he would have to be without the Denmark international for an extended spell. "Agger is long-term. They can't put a date on it,'' said Hodgson. "At the moment he can't train, he has just got to rest and wait for the next time he goes to see the specialist again. They are very anxious that bone doesn't form. It is a calcification issue and training would certainly accelerate the calcification. "Now they have to wait and hope the body breaks down the calcifying elements before he can even think about training again. So it could be very long term. "
