Fresh injury further hampers Kelly career

Martin Kelly’s Liverpool career has not gone according to plan since his Premier League debut three seasons ago and after a fresh injury it appears the Kop will have to wait a lot longer to see the youngster fulfil his potential.

Kelly, a product of Liverpool’s youth system, limped off in the dying minutes of the live football online action on Sunday, which ended in a 2-1 loss to rivals Manchester United, after twisting his knee on the Anfield turf. The right-back immediately collapsed and after brief treatment headed off the pitch, leaving his side with just eight outfield players.

A scan on Monday has revealed damage that will keep the 22-year-old out of action until the new year, just another personal setback after a tough baptism of fire to life in the Premier League.

For Kelly’s rise through the Reds ranks has come at a time where the club have fallen on bad times. Mismanagement at board level has restricted success on the pitch and Kelly’s first full season with the club coincided with Liverpool finishing outside the top six for the first time in a decade. Liverpool are now rank outsiders to finish in the top four this season in the bet365 football betting odds.

The right-back has constantly found a place in the Liverpool first team difficult to hold down thanks to Glen Johnson’s presence and just last year he limped off with a hamstring problem following an indifferent display against Bolton.

Despite Liverpool winning 63% of their games with Kelly last season, the Whiston-born man was often overlooked as manager Kenny Dalglish struggled to find consistency in his squad.

Now under a new boss it was hoped Kelly would earn a string of appearances in the squad as Brendan Rodgers develops a youthful side for the future. However, the man often touted as Jamie Carragher’s successor is yet to find his true footing at Liverpool and this new injury layoff will seriously hamper any integration into the Rodgers era.
