Galatasaray player Nordin Amrabat described the moment his muscle tore in Morocco’s 6-1 win over Benin.

“I was running, made a pass and was slowing down when I heard a terrible noise,” Amrabat said.

“I heard the muscle rip and knew something bad had happened.

“I was in so much pain, I felt it hit my brain and it continued for a while after.

“I have never experienced anything that bad before, at PSV I had an injury but this really was horrible.”

Amrabat is facing up to a month on the sidelines after suffering a muscle tear.

The Moroccan international joined Galatasaray from Kayserispor in July 2012 for €8.6 million and still has three-years remaining on his contract.

Amrabat is currently on loan with La Liga outfit Malaga.

The 27-year-old winger has three assists and three goals in his last five league games and was named in Marca’s October La Liga Team of the Month.
