Fiorentina midfielder Michele Pazienza has been ruled out of the remainder of the season.
The former Udinese ace suffered a bad injury during Sunday's game against Siena.
Scans on Monday have confirmed the club's worst fears that Pazienza has suffered serious knee ligament damage.
An operation will be required on the injury in the coming days, which will rule him out for the rest of the Serie A campaign.
The 23-year-old will hope to return in time for pre-season training ahead of the 2006/2007 season.
