Willy Sagnol may miss the rest of the season after suspected meniscus damage.
Bayern Munich defender Willy Sagnol may not play again this season after suffering an injury in his side's 2-2 draw with Milan in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday night.
The 30-year-old France defender was forced to withdraw from the game after 70 minutes with what is believed to be a meniscus problem, which may require surgery.
Should that occur, Sagnol is also likely to miss his country's Euro 2008 qualifier again Ukraine on 2nd June.
"According to the doctor, it is a meniscus problem," he told Canal+.
"An operation is possible, so that would mean six to eight weeks' unavailability. If that is confirmed, I won't play with France in the Ukraine, but that is life and football.
"Another will do my job."
Sagnol did take some comfort from the result of the Milan game, however, as his side take two away goals through to the second leg.
However, he was critical of the referee in the game, who awarded the hosts a highly controversial penalty for an 'imaginary' foul on Kaka.
"The draw is justice," he said.
"The penalty was imaginary, but we expected that from this ref."
