Liverpool, England – Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina has undergone surgery on his nose which he broke in the 2-1 loss to Manchester United last weekend.

Reina was hurt when he collided with Shinji Kagawa in the second half of Sunday's game at Old Trafford, causing him to miss the 5-0 thrashing of Norwich on Saturday when Brad Jones deputized.

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers also says Reina has been struggling with a thigh injury and is battling to be fit for the FA Cup fourth-round match at Oldham on January 27.

Said: Rodgers : “We'll see how he is by next week and review it from there.” – Sapa-AP
