MADRID (AP) Spanish club Celta Vigo says Giuseppe Rossi has torn ligaments in his left knee and will be sidelined for six months.

An incredibly talented scorer, Rossi’s career has been plagued by injuries. His latest occurred in the first half of Celta’s 2-0 loss to Eibar on Sunday. He walked off the field and sat on the bench.

A week ago, Rossi scored a hat trick for Celta in a 3-1 win over Las Palmas.
