Van Nistelrooy - calf injury.
VAN NISTELROOY SEASON OVER
Ruud van Nistelrooy looks to have played his last match for Hamburg after being ruled out for the remainder of the season with a calf injury.
The 34-year-old former Real Madrid and Manchester United hitman suffered the injury in Saturday's 0-0 draw with Hanover.
Van Nistelrooy's contract is up at the end of the season and after being denied a return to Real in January, he stated he did not wish to renew it.
"It's hard to swallow," Van Nistelrooy said of the injury on Hamburg's website.
"I hope to be able to come back as quickly as possible, but it is clear that I will be absent for a fair amount of time."
