Juventus have been dealt a blow as Alessandro Del Piero has been ruled out for at least a month.
The Juve 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 injury.
