Sun Jihai's Manchester City future is in severe doubt after he was ruled out for the rest of the season after rupturing the cruciate ligament in his
left knee in Saturday night's 1-0 Barclays Premiership win over Chelsea.
Sun suffered the injury in the 42nd minute as he attempted to tackle Eidur Gudjohnsen.
The 27-year-old was immediately helped off the field by City's medical staff - and the injury was quickly confirmed, the worst possible news for a
player whose present contract runs out next summer.
