SAF: "It's a terrible blow for the lad. When a player is 31 and ruled out of the game for a year it is a fear. But Lothar Matthäus was 33 when he ruptured his cruciate knee ligaments, he got up at 4am every day to get fit and played until the age of 36. In that respect he can be an inspiration for Ole and hopefully he will make a comeback.
