Juve Star Out For 20 Days Due To Injury

Juventus star Leonardo Bonucci will be out of action for at least 20 days due to injury, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport.

The Italian defender suffered an injury while on international duty with the Azzurri and, as a result, would skip the League of Nations matches against Poland and Bosnia and Herzegovina.

“I wanted to be here at all costs, but unfortunately it is not going to happen,” Bonucci told RAI Sport.

“I tried everything, tried to clench my teeth for the last 20 days, as even against Lazio I had some pain and hoped it would go away, but it kept increasing. I asked too much of my body. “

Bonucci will undergo medical examinations at J Medical and could miss the games against Cagliari, Benevento, Ferencvaros and Dynamo Kiev, but will recover in time for action on December 5 against Torino.
