Sydney FC has been dealt a massive blow just five days out from the 2009/10 Hyundai A-League Grand Final with striker John Aloisi today being ruled out of the championship decider with injury.

Results from MRI scans taken yesterday confirmed a torn left hamstring would keep him out for between 6-8 weeks.

Aloisi was in peak form for the Sky Blues in season 2009/10, netting a club record 10 goals.

“I ‘m shattered,” Aloisi said. “We have worked so hard to get here and to have it taken from you is really devastating.”

“When it happened I knew something wasn-t right but you always have hope. When I got the news from the doctor it was pretty upsetting.

**Aloisi will be holding a press conference at the SFS tomorrow at 1pm.
