AC Milan midfielder Nigel de Jong is set to miss the rest of the season after rupturing his left Achilles during Sunday's 4-2 win over Torino.

The 28-year-old Holland international was stretchered off just 22 minutes into the Serie A match 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 official 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."

De Jong was a summer signing from Manchester City and has made 15 appearances for the Rossoneri.

t's why Mourinho is so successful. He gives players a specific, limited set of functions to perform. They are but a cog in a machine. Do no more, do no less. I assume he learnt it from LvG :)

really hope that someone in the mainstream media spots that the Bayern manager played for and managed Barcelona quite well, and thinks to mention it in the build up. That would be really interesting.
