Juventus and Italy forward Fabio Quagliarella underwent a successful operation on his torn cruciate knee ligament on Sunday, his club said.

The 27-year-old injured his knee during Thursday's 4-1 home defeat to Parma.

But following his operation in Rome, Juve issued a statement: "Quagliarella will stay there to recover for three or four days and then return to Turin to begin his rehabilitation programme.

"He is expected to be back fit again in five to six months."
