FC Dallas’ Luccin out 6-8 months with torn ACL

Dallas midfielder Peter Luccin has undergone surgery for a torn
left knee ligament and will be out at least six months.

The surgery on Luccin’s anterior cruciate ligament Thursday came
after he was injured during the preseason in early February.

The 33-year-old Luccin started his career in the youth system of
the French club AS Cannes before playing in Ligue 1. He has played
215 matches in Spain’s La Liga with Celta de Vigo, Atletico Madrid,
Real Zaragoza and Racing Santander.

Luccin and defender Ugo Ihemelu have been placed on injured
reserve. Ihemelu is dealing with concussion symptoms.
