Juve's Andrade out for season?

September 23, 2007

ROME, Sept 23 (Reuters) - Juventus's Portugal defender Jorge Andrade looks likely to miss the rest of the season after suffering a knee injury during his side's 2-2 draw at AS Roma on Sunday.

'The worst news today is that Andrade has torn a knee tendon and I think we'll lose him for the whole season,' Juventus coach Claudio Ranieri told Sky.

The centre back, who joined Juventus from Deportive La Coruna in the close season, was carried off the field on a stretcher at the start of the second half of the Serie A match.
