Kuyt injured attempting bicycle kick

Liverpool forward Dirk Kuyt has picked up a shoulder injury which could see him out of action for up to six weeks.

The 30-year-old has been ruled out of Holland’s Euro 2012 qualifier against Finland tomorrow night after an attempted bicycle kick went wrong in training this afternoon.

Kuyt will travel back to Liverpool’s Melwood training ground tomorrow where the club’s medical staff will assess the shoulder injury.

When quizzed about the seriousness of the accident, Dutch manager Bert van Marwijk said that Kuyt could be out for a number of weeks.

The news will be a blow to Roy Hodgson with Liverpool set to play Birmingham on Saturday in the Premier League and Steaua Bucharest in the Europa League next Thursday.
