It is fair to say Nicolai Muller will not try to emulate this goal celebration the next time he scores for Hamburg.

The forward got so carried away after netting the winning goal on seven minutes against Augsburg in the Bundesliga, he performed a unique run, jump and twirl that ended with him hitting a corner flag, hitting the deck and damaging his knee.

The outcome? A goal for Hamburg, but game and possibly season over Muller.

The 29-year-old attacker has suffered a torn anterior ligament that ended with him learning the bad news on Sunday that he is unlikely to play again until March.

“It’s bad news,” said Hamburg coach Markus Gisdol. “I’ve never seen anything like it.”

Let us hope he makes a speedy recovery.
