Liverpool have been dealt an injury blow with news coming out of Holland that Dirk Kuyt has been ruled out for several weeks with a shoulder injury.

The accident happened when the Reds man landed awkwardly as he stretched for a cross, with some reports claiming he had attempted a scissor kick, during yesterday afternoon’s training session.

The 30-year-old has been immediately ruled out of tonight’s European Championship qualifier  between Holland and Finland, and it’s feared he will be out for up to 4 weeks.

Kuyt is due back at Melwood this morning for further assessment by the Liverpool medical team and a prognosis is expected this afternoon. However, Dutch coach Bert van Marwijk has already claimed the player will miss a few weeks:

“He will probably have a few weeks off and at 4pm today he will step on to the plane to Liverpool,” Van Marwijk told the Dutch media.
