Injury not serious says Ramires

Chelsea midfielder Ramires has confirmed the knee injury he picked up against Queens Park Rangers in the FA Cup on Saturday is not as serious as he first thought.

Ramires was injured half way through the second half as he blocked a shot from QPR defender Clint Hill. After the game, the Brazilian international said:

''The ball hit my foot with force and twisted my knee. When I fell on the floor I was already feeling a lot of pain and thought it was something really serious.

"However the doctors looked at it and said the medial ligament in my knee was stretched, but it's not broken.

''Tomorrow (Sunday) I will have a more detailed exam to find out what really happened, but I believe and hope it's nothing serious. I was feeling good in the match and unfortunately this accident happened.''

It's understood that Ramires is expected to be sidelined for at least four weeks.
