Liverpool Boss Benitez: Torres Out For Two To Three Weeks

'El Nino' set for another spell on the sidelines.

Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez has confirmed that Kop favourite Fernando Torres is expected to be out of action for two to three weeks owing to an ongoing groin injury.
The striker had been playing through pain to boost his club's performances, but has taken to recuperating himself during the international break.

"We are talking of two or three weeks out now for Fernando," Benitez is quoted by The Times as saying.

"He has worked hard in training, and we felt he would be okay for the match [against Birmingham City]. But you could see that he was not right."

The Spanish tactician also touched upon the subject of the injury that has troubled the Reds' talismanic captain Steven Gerrard in recent times.

The skipper had missed a fortnight's training before coming on as a substitute in the game against Birmingham at Anfield.

"Steven Gerrard looked okay after his groin problems, physically he was fine," he said.

"We will have to see how the injury reacts but he brought us quality and passion, and I hope that we can now manage his problems better."
