Giuseppe Rossi injured again

Posted on | April 14, 2012 | No Comments

Giuseppe Rossi suffered a rupture of anterior cruciate ligament  on his right knee last year in October in a game against Real Madrid.

The Italian striker hoped for a return on the field that would help him reach the Italy squad for the European championship. But this week Rossi suffered another rupture on the same ligament.

This is the worst news for Villareal and for Italy as Rossi is a  key player for both teams. Now the player will go to US again for investigations and surgery.

The recovery period is believed to be of around 6 months. This means that Rossi will stay out of the field for more than a year and he may not reach the same top level again.

Rossi was one of the best players for Italy in the qualification round and his absence will be miss. With Antonio Cassano also in doubt Italy will have a difficult task in replacing them.
