The Chile international lasted just nine minutes of the Grifone's 1-0 defeat at Siena on Sunday, and medical tests have now confirmed the extent of the damage.

A statement on genoacfc.it read: "The club can confirm that midfielder Cristobal Jorquera underwent a medical examination and a magnetic scan at the Baluardo Institute following the injury he suffered at Siena.

"The scan confirmed a second-grade lesion to his right thigh muscle."

Santiago-born Jorquera, who can also play as a second striker, signed a four-year contract with Genoa in 2011 after leaving hometown club Colo Colo.

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
