OFFICIAL: Juventus Striker Alessandro Del Piero Ruled Out For 40 Days With Injury
Juventus have been dealt another blow as Alessandro Del Piero has been ruled out for 40 days after being struck down by injury yet again.
Earlier reports from Tuttosport claimed the captain went down in obvious discomfort during today’s training session at Vinovo.
Juventus have now confirmed the player will be out for at least five weeks.
A statement on the club’s official website reads:
“During the training session, Del Piero complained of some pain in the middle area of his left leg.
“The captain underwent tests straight away and the results have shown a first-second degree injury on his adductor muscle.
“A rest period of 30-40 days is predicted.”
It’s a major blow to the Bianconeri as their captain had only just recovered from a previous problem.
Tiago has also been sidelined. He complained of a problem regarding his left leg and it is said he will be out for 20 days.
