Wolfsburg forward Vieirinha will be sidelined for several months after tearing a ligament in his left knee.

The Bundesliga club says the Portugal international was injured in the 2-0 victory over Aalen in the German Cup on Tuesday.

Vieirinha was taken off the field on a stretcher.

Wolfsburg says a decision on where and when to have Vieirinha undergo an operation will be made over the next few days.
