Liverpool expect Agger back soon

Rafael Benitez has rubbished reports that suggest Liverpool defender Daniel Agger will be ruled out of action until November.

Agger looks set to undergo an operation on a back injury that has plagued him since March this year and forced him to miss the start of the season for the Reds.

But Benitez says that he expects the Danish international to return to action next month.

“Yes, he saw a specialist and maybe he will need an operation.

“I don’t think it will be long. If everything goes well it won’t take too much time, maybe a few weeks.”
