Giuseppe Rossi Set to Out for 10 Months

Bad luck never seems to stop arriving for Villarreal striker, Giuseppe Rossi, this season as the latest reports suggesting that he might need longer time to recover from his second ligament injury from the previously predicted six months.

According to reports, Rossi will most likely rest for about 10 months because of his current recurring injury because he apparently must get a second surgery after facing the first one last Friday.

Jozy Nets First La Liga Goal

On Sunday, Jozy Altidore subbed into the game into the 90th minute for Villarreal, and then┬ápromptly put the ball into the back of the net for his first goal on Spain’s biggest stage. Villarreal had already put the game away against Athletic Bilboa, but it was nice to see Jozy get a goal, even if it was mop up duty.

Jozy’s birthday is this Thursday. He’s turning 19. No, that’s not a typo. He just looks like a 25 year old.

La Liga Preview

Real Madrid’s second successive La Liga title came with the minimum of fuss, and although there was a slight stumble towards the end of the season, an eight point gap over Villarreal, coupled with a +48 goal difference, underlined their undoubted superiority.

Bearing this in mind, coach Bernd Schuster has been relatively quiet in the transfer market, with the recent signing of Dutch playmaker Rafael van der Vaart the most significant piece of transfer activity in or out of the Bernabeu.
