The 26-year-old was withdrawn after 29 minutes of the goalless draw at Catania after complaining of sharp pain when planting his studs in the turf.

A statement on the club's official website read: "Francesco Pisano has suffered a fracture to the fibula of his left leg.

"The prognosis will be better defined over the next few days but it is clear that the season is already over for the defender."

The Sardinian right-back has been a near ever-present for Cagliari this season, making 28 league appearances as Ivo Pulga's men continue to establish themselves in mid-table.

He said: "I felt my foot twist when blocking an opponent who was going to shoot and felt a sharp pain. I knew immediately it was something serious."

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
