Reds sweat as Gerrard “may need surgery”

Liverpool face an anxious wait today for news from the club’s medical team about the extent of Steven Gerrard‘s groin injury.

The Telegraph reports the 30-year-old Reds captain looks set to see a specialist over the injury that has aggravated him since Liverpool’s 1-0 victory at Chelsea in February.

With the rest of the squad in Portugal for this evening’s Europa League tie against Braga, Gerrard is back on Merseyside undergoing scans of his groin problem.

If the decision is made to operate, Gerrard could miss the rest of the month’s action – which includes Liverpool’s two Europa League games against Braga, a Premier League encounter with Sunderland and two England internationals.

Dalglish told press in his pre-Braga press conference yesterday, “He’s not suffered any aggravation. He’s got a problem with his groin.

“He’s not travelled and we’ll have him looked at. We should have more news on Friday. There’s nothing new.”
