Liverpool Midfielder Suffers Injury Blow

By on April 26, 2012


Liverpool midfielder Charlie Adam has been ruled out for the rest of the season with a knee injury, Kenny Dalglish has confirmed today.

Adam hasn’t played since March 21st when the Reds lost to QPR at Loftus Road and has been sidelined for longer than initially feared. The full extend of the injury has only now become clear and while he won’t require surgery, the 26-year-old won’t play again this season.

Kenny Dalglish is quoted as saying by the clubs official website that the Scottish international is also ruled out of this summers Olympics, with Adam thought to be in consideration for the Great Britain football team.

“There is no operation needed but he won’t play this season,” said Dalglish.

“And I would think if they had any designs on having him in the Olympics he wouldn’t be fit for that either.”

Adam has been hit-and-miss since his move to Anfield from Blackpool last summer, with fans split over his contribution to the team. His absence has allowed promising youngsters Jay Spearing and Jonjo Shelvey to enjoy more playing time and stake a claim for a regular place in Kenny Dalglish’s first team.

    He’s not been hit and miss rather he’s been miss and miss! Do hope we have seen the back of this guy forever!
