Hamburg's injured De Jong facing month out

Nigel de Jong has been ruled out for up to a month after tearing knee ligaments while on international duty.

The Dutchman returned to Hamburg on Monday to undergo tests on his right knee after limping out of Saturday's World Cup qualifier against Iceland after only 13 minutes.

The 23-year-old had already been ruled out of Holland's next World Cup qualifier against Norway on Wednesday and now faces a lengthy spell on the sidelines.

''Nigel will be out for around three to four weeks,'' explained club doctor Oliver Dierk.

He will therefore miss Hamburg's top-of-the-table clash with Schalke on Sunday as well as key games with Hoffenheim, Stuttgart and Borussia Dortmund.

The northern Germany derby with Werder Bremen on November 23 could be a likely date for a return.
