Sagnol blow sours Bayern draw

FC Bayern München coach Ottmar Hitzfeld fears his French full-back Willy Sagnol could be out for the rest of the season after injuring his right knee at AC Milan.

FC Bayern München full-back Willy Sagnol could be out for the rest of the season after injuring his right knee during Tuesday's UEFA Champions League quarter-final first-leg draw at AC Milan.

Hitzfeld concern
"He's got a serious cartilage injury," said Bayern coach Ottmar Hitzfeld. "In the next few days he will undergo an operation and in all probability he won't be able to play for us again this season." French international Sagnol, 30, was replaced after 68 minutes by Christian Lell when the score was 1-0 to Milan, although the match finished 2-2 thanks to Daniel Van Buyten's late leveller for Bayern. The tie concludes in Munich next Wednesday.
