Defender Daniel Agger will miss Liverpool’s final two games of the Premier League season, opting to undergo treatment on his back, which has caused him some distress down the years.
It means Agger’s season is over, with Slovakian international Martin Skrtel set to finish the season with veteran, and shortly retiring, Jamie Carragher in central defence.
The club confirmed today on their official website:
The club’s medical team and associated specialists have decided to undertake a series of elective injections to enhance the stability of the defender’s back.
Plagued by numerous injuries since moving to Anfield in 2006, the 2012/13 season has been both Agger’s fullest, and most successful.
Agger will sit out of the games away at Fulham this Sunday, and at home against QPR on the final day of the season.
The 28-year-old Danish international will also miss the Reds’ post-season friendly in Cape Town, South Africa.
Liverpool are also without captain Steven Gerrard for the final two games, with the Reds confirming he will undergo surgery on a shoulder injury.
