Anderlecht lose ex-Dortmund winger for at least six months



Anderlecht have announced that winger Thorgan Hazard has suffered a cruciate ligament injury that could keep him out for at least six months. The ex-Dortmund midfielder suffered the injury during the first half of the Brussels derby and was replaced by Francis Amuzu. In the end, it was his replacement that ended up scoring the winning goal despite the side being down to 10 men.
