Kuyt facing lengthy lay off

LIVERPOOL, September 7 – Liverpool midfielder Dirk Kuyt faces a four-week injury lay-off after damaging a shoulder on international duty with the Netherlands, the club confirmed Tuesday.
The 30-year-old Anfield ace suffered the injury during training ahead of Holland’s Euro 2012 with Finland and returned to Liverpool’s Melwood training base to undergo tests.

"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," club doctor Peter Brukner said in a statement.

The injury rules Kuyt out of upcoming Premier League clashes with Birmingham, Manchester United and Sunderland as well as a Europa League tie with his former club FC Utrecht.

Kuyt joined Liverpool from Feyenoord in 2006 in a deal worth nearly 10 million pounds.
