Kewell return still pending

15 Feb 2007 - 14:40:01

Liverpool manager Rafa Benitez has admitted that Australia forward Harry Kewell is still some way off a return to action, as he struggles to overcome long-standing injury problems.

The 28-year-old left-winger has not featured at all for the Reds this term, having sustained groin and foot problems while on World Cup duty with the Socceroos.

Benitez admitted: "Harry is progressing, but with his situation we can't say whether it's one week or two weeks or whatever.

"We need to look at it day by day. I could say he could be back for two weeks, but we have to really wait and see.

"We tried to support Harry when he had some problems last season. He was playing really well, but after the World Cup he had another problem.

"The physios are working on Harry, but now we just need time.

"We have to wait for him to be close to being fit before we talk to him and give him support on the mental side of playing again."
