Beister suffers torn cruciate

11 January 2014 22:40

Hamburg's Maximilian Beister is set to miss the rest of the Bundesliga season after tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee.

The 23-year-old forward, who has enjoyed an impressive campaign to date, was hurt during Hamburg's friendly against Eredivisie outfit Vitesse in Abu Dhabi on Saturday.

An MRI scan after the game confirmed the extent of Beister's injury and he will now undergo surgery in the coming week.

Hamburg sporting director Oliver Kreuzer said: "This is obviously very bitter. Especially for Maxi I am sorry, because he has shown great games in the first half (of the Bundesliga season) and scored important goals for us."

In a report published on their website after the Vitesse game, Hamburg expressed fears that Beister had been seriously injured.

"Beister appeared to twist his knee while in full flight after 54 minutes. His screams echoed around the almost empty stadium," Hamburg explained.

The club return to league action on January 26 with a home game against Schalke.
