Liverpool FC have confirmed that Milan Baroš will be out for up to a month after pulling his hamstring in the Czech Republic's defeat of F.Y.R. Macedonia on Wednesday.
The 23-year-old lasted just 17 minutes of the 2-0 FIFA World Cup qualifying victory and will now miss the conclusion of Liverpool's UEFA Champions League Group A campaign. A statement on the club's official website said: "Milan underwent a scan this afternoon. Unfortunately that has shown a pull in the hamstring of his left leg and he is likely to be out for between three and four weeks. Milan will begin his rehabilitation on Friday."
In addition to missing a number of Premiership matches as eighth-placed Liverpool look to close in on the English leaders, Baroš will sit out Tuesday's Champions League fixture at AS Monaco FC and the visit of Olympiacos CFP on 8 December. The striker has scored ten goals this season, including a hat-trick against Crystal Palace FC last weekend, and was carrying the goalscoring burden with Djibril Cissé ruled out for the season.
