Inter Milan's Chivu in hospital after fracturing skull

Wednesday, 6 January 2010 ·

Christian Chivu, Inter Milan's left-footed central defender, is apparently stable in hospital after a clash of heads in the 1-0 win over Chievo.  A nasty clash of heads resulting in a fractured skull meant the Romanian star had to spend over an hour in surgery to relieve a haematoma and remove bone fragments.  When asked, Jose Mouriunho was hopeful, but admitted, "he will be out of action for some time."
The win keeps Inter eight points ahead of their local rivals AC Milan, but the news of this shocking injury to one of the stalwarts to their defence is a blow to not only their league hopes, but their chances of success in the Champions League.  Chelsea are their opponents in the next round of the competition and if Inter are to hurdle this difficult obstacle they are going to need all their best players available.

Chivu is an excellent player and it is a shame that he is gonna be out with such an injury. Let's hope when he gets back he still plays to the same level.
Wishing him all the best for a speedy recovery.

My prayers are with Chivu; excellent defender. Hopefully he can come back and play at the same level.
