Liverpool recieve striker boost

The Spanish striker pulled up during Spain’s 1-0 victory over Holland in the World Cup Final and it was feared that the 26 year old could be set for an extended period on the sidelines.

Liverpool’s head of sports science and medicine Peter Brukner told the club’s official website: “The initial assessment was he had a mild abductor tear and the Spanish medical staff didn’t consider it to be too serious at the time.

“He had an MRI scan yesterday which confirmed a small tear. He should be able to resume training within two to three weeks and be able to play again within three to four weeks.”
