Qantas Socceroo Harry Kewell is likely to be out of action for at least a month, in an attempt to recover from a persistent groin injury. The Liverpool striker has received an injection to help him overcome the injury and Liverpool spokesman Ian Cotton told the club-s website, www.liverpoolfc.tv. “He is likely to be out of action between four and five weeks.” After receiving some harsh criticism from the media and fans, Kewell was starting to get back to some of the form, which made him one of the hottest players in the Premier League several years ago. However the injury has kept him from the training paddock and Liverpool is hoping the month-s rest will see him overcome the problem. Meanwhile Kewell-s Australian strike partner Mark Viduka is doubtful for the New Year-s Day clash with Manchester United.
Viduka missed the midweek clash against Norwich with a hamstring injury, which he picked up in the Boxing Day clash against Birmingham City. His replacement Joseph Job scoring both goals in Boro-s 2-0 win over Norwich.
Over at Birmingham, Stan Lazaridis is likely to return to the Birmingham City squad for the clash with Newcastle United, after being rested in the midweek clash against Fulham. City manager Steve Bruce was concerned with the congested fixtures and how that could impact on Lazaridis, since he has only just returned from injury.
