Striker Mame Biram Diouf will miss Hannover's final four Bundesliga games after suffering an ankle injury in last night's 2-0 win over Wolfsburg. Diouf scored the opener before limping off and scans today revealed he has torn ligaments in his left ankle.

"After an extensive diagnosis by the Hannover 96 team doctors, it is apparent that Diouf will be unavailable for the final four matches of the season," a statement on the club's website read.

The news comes as a blow to Hannover's European ambitions, with the club shy of a UEFA Europa League place on goal difference only. The 24-year-old has scored six goals in ten league appearances since joining from Manchester United in January.
