Liverpool's Boudewijn Zenden
Zenden joins a lengthy Liverpool casualty list
Liverpool midfield man Boudewijn Zenden will be out for six weeks after undergoing surgery on his knee.

The 30-year-old suffered medial knee ligament damage in Saturday's 1-0 win against Manchester City.

Zenden missed much of last season with a knee injury, but boss Rafael Benitez said it was not the same problem.

He said: "Because it is the same knee, the decision has been made that he must have the operation. He will be out for between four and five weeks."

606 DEBATE: What do you make of this news?

Zenden's injury is the latest setback to hit Liverpool's depleted midfield, with Xabi Alonso and Mohamed Sissoko ruled out with long-term problems.

He is added to a casualty list that also incluldes Mark Gonzalez, Harry Kewell, Stephen Warnock and Fabio Aurelio.
