Hernanes says that his injury is not serious and he will be ready for game against Catania on Wednesday. The midfielder landed awkwardly on his ankle after a collision with his teammate Miroslav Klose and was taken off the field after 64 minutes.

However, today Brazilian told globoesporte.globo.com, "I'll be there on Wednesday. It was only a light sprain. At the time I felt the pain and because we were leading, the coach decided to substitute me. I feel fine now and I'm available to play against Catania".

The 26-year-old also took his time to speak about the curious Robert Acquafresca own goal, "I don't know who the referee gave the goal, but my intention was to score. The ball was deflected by one of their players and ended up in the net. But the important thing was the victory, it doesn't matter who scores. Our team is on the right track, we are growing with every game. I'm very happy with the result".
