    Hamburg winger Nicolai Muller will miss the next seven months after he ruptured a knee ligament in celebrating a goal.

    Having scored eight minutes into Saturday's 1-0 home win over Augsburg, Muller performed a series of helicopter whirls before launching himself into a jump as he punched the air.

    He landed awkwardly, and was clearly in pain as his team-mates ran to join in.

    Hamburg coach Markus Gisdol said it was "certainly a downer, I have never experienced anything like it before".

    Muller, 29, joined Hamburg from Mainz in 2014 and has twice played for Germany, most recently in 2013.

    He ruptured the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee, with his club confirming he is expected to be out for "approximately seven months".

    Multiple videos cut into one to show the different angles of what happened

    That's mad.... I but it's obviously way too dangerous to be allowed to happen, wasn't too long ago a guy was killed at the Millenium stadium in Cardiff by a flare that had been launched from another part of the ground.

    These incidents seem to be copying Turkey or Poland, which might be a reflection of the changing demographic in Germany. I've certainly seen nothing on that scale in England.

    Got to be happy with that Europa League draw @Rhineland

    Do you have a dilemma which end you sit in?

    It's not the quantity but the quality that counts. Bayern cherry-pick the best players.

    I'd love to see the English teams in that list to compare the prices.

    No, no dilemma at all. As long as I get a ticket, it's fine. Very happy for the draw indeed, apart from the fact, that I won't be able to make it for the Arsenal v Cologne match as it's on matchday 1 in a fortnight and not in November (as I had thought) . Given Cologne's current form, this could end up in disaster. Still, the travelling Cologne fans will enjoy their day in London. My hope is obviously that both clubs will make it to the next round, but it will be a much tougher task for Cologne than for the Arsenal. Borisov is a CL club in disguise and Belgrade is a tough place to go to. In 1989 or so Cologne overcame a 2-0 deficit from the first leg in Belgrade and won their return match 3:0. One of the best nights Cologne enjoyed in the old Müngersdorfer Stadium.
