Juve's Andrade out until '08

Juventus's Portugal defender Jorge Andrade, who injured his left knee in the 2-2 draw against AS Roma at the weekend, has seriously torn ligaments in his left knee which has ruled him out for the year.

Juventus did not give an estimate of the player's unavailability but did say he will not play for the remainder of 2007.

And after Sunday's match against Roma, coach Claudio Ranieri had even believed that his season may already be over.

Andrade is expected to have an operation very soon before starting his long comeback to full fitness.
