Juventus faces injury setback as key players’ fitness hangs in balance

Max Statman



Juventus returned to training today after a convincing 3-1 victory over Lazio in the recent Serie A fixture, but the day wasn’t without its concerns for manager Allegri.

According to the latest reports from Continassa, three key members of the squad could be at risk for upcoming matches.


French midfielder Adrien Rabiot and Brazilian defender Alex Sandro both left today’s training session prematurely due to injuries. However, there appear to be differences in the severity of their conditions.

Rabiot, the talented Juventus midfielder, seems to be causing less worry as his injury appears to have resulted from a collision during training. His early exit was precautionary to avoid any potentially more severe issues. The team hopes Rabiot can recover in time for the upcoming matches.

Alex Sandro, on the other hand, underwent a more thorough evaluation. The Brazilian defender reported a muscular issue during training and will undergo medical examinations to determine the extent of the injury.

However, midfielder Weston McKennie experienced a setback during today’s training session. It appears he took a knock to the knee, necessitating the application of an ice brace.

Currently, the outlook is positive regarding his condition, and the injury does not appear to be severe. The team will closely monitor McKennie’s recovery in the coming hours.


Juventus is currently assessing the situation regarding the injuries to Rabiot, Alex Sandro, and McKennie as they prepare for the upcoming Serie A fixtures including the match against Sassuolo.
