Nigel De Jong: Suffered a ruptured left Achilles during win over Torino

The former Manchester City player was stretchered off on 22 minutes after falling awkwardly, with the club later confirming the seriousness of the injury.

"A bittersweet Sunday," club vice-president Adriano Galliani told the club's website.

"De Jong's tendon has snapped and that means the season is over for him.

"It's a big loss for the team and takes the shine off the win."

Holland international De Jong joined the Rossoneri last summer and has made 15 appearances for the club.

Milan ran out 4-2 victors at Torino to record their third successive Serie A win, lifting them to seventh in the league table.

ood lord that's got me unnecessarily excited. Damn you Storey. Cut to Liverpool being crushed under the wheels of Sparky's Stoke Machine and Firmino brought off the bench to no effect. It's the hope that kills you.

think he'll do quite well. My only reservation would be Kagawa, who had similar stats to Firmino in the bundesliga before he came, but time will tell.
