The Hamburg captain limped out of the the international friendly with Colombia and has since been diagnosed with torn ligaments after undergoing a scan back in Germany.

A rest of up to four weeks is likely for the 30-year-old, who also has a sore right foot after the challenge from Abel Aguilar.

He therefore is doubtful for all five remaining Bundesliga fixtures this year, although if his recovery goes well, the Hamburg playmaker could feature against Mainz on December 21.

He is likely to miss the league games against Hannover, Wolfsburg, Augsburg and Bayern Munich, as well as the DFB-Pokal third round tie with Cologne.

wonder if he'd feel the same way if he wasn't a white, non-jewish heterosexual male. Because Mackay has basically insulted everyone else!
