Shoulder injury forces Kuyt out for four weeks

Liverpool have confirmed Dirk Kuyt will miss the next four weeks with a shoulder injury.

Kuyt suffered the injury during training with Holland ahead of their Euro 2012 qualifier against Finland, and returned to England yesterday for tests at Liverpool’s Melwood training base.

Club doctor Peter Brukner said: “Dirk has damaged his shoulder at the A-C joint, which is between the collar bone and the shoulder. He is likely to be out for four weeks.”

The injury will see the 30-year-old miss games against Birmingham, Steaua Bucharest, Manchester United, Northampton, Sunderland as well as the Europa League trip to his former club FC Utrecht.
