MONACO: Liverpool’s Spanish midfielder Luis Garcia will be out of action for up to a month after limping off with a hamstring injury after just two minutes of their 1-0 Champions League defeat in Monaco on Tuesday. 

“Obviously, it’s a hamstring injury and he should be out of action for three to four weeks,” said Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez, who added that the loss of the player was a big blow. 

Liverpool were already without strikers Djibril Cisse and Milan Baros through injury, while Czech midfielder Vladimir Smicer is a long-term absentee.
