Nuremberg: Breno out for rest of season

BERLIN - Nuremberg's on-loan defender Breno will be out for several months after sustaining a serious knee injury, the Bundesliga club said on Monday.

The Brazilian tore the cruciate ligament in his right knee during Nuremberg's 3-2 win over Bayer Leverkusen on Sunday.

The 20-year-old, who joined Nuremberg from Bayern Munich in January, will undergo surgery in the United States in the coming weeks before returning to Bayern, the club said in a statement.
