Liverpool are concerned that the injury which was suffered by Daniel Agger at the hands of his own player during yesterday’s Barclay’s Premier League match could be damage to the medial collateral ligament which could rule him out for the rest of the season.
Stretchered off after clashing with Glenn Johnson, Agger seemed in considerable distress and after the match finished at Anfield, Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers commented
Agger’s doesn’t look good, the medics were saying it might be a medial ligament.
At this point, nothing is confirmed and Liverpool will await the result of scans to determine the extent of Daniel Agger’s injury.
Medial collateral ligaments are located on the inner side of the knee which runs between the femur and the tibia. It works to help stabilise the knee joint and to protect it against any blows or forces which may be directed towards the inner side of the knee. The medial collateral ligament also helps to reduce the amount the knee is able to move from side to side.
