A statement published on fcparma.com read: "Parma announce that medical tests have revealed damage to the anterior cruciate ligament of Daniele Galloppa's right knee.
"The player, who was injured during Wednesday night's match against Marseille, will undergo surgery at the hand of Professor Paolo Adravanti."
