Bonucci’s adductor muscle strain was absent for a month, and Chiesa and Vlahovic also had minor injuries.
December 15-although the European League has been suspended for a month, Juventus are still suffering from injuries. Yesterday, Juventus officially announced that Bonucci had a strain in the adductor muscle, while Chiesa and Vlahovic were also injured. None of these players will take part in the warm-up match against Arsenal.
Juve officials announced yesterday: “Bonucci suffered an injury during Tuesday’s training and was confirmed as an adductor strain after detailed examination. His injury will be evaluated in 10 days’ time.”
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Bonucci could recover for as long as a month. He will miss the first league game in the second half of January 4 and Juve hope he will be back in the crucial match against Napoli on January 13.
Bonucci is not the only one suffering from injuries. Chiesa felt muscle discomfort during training on Tuesday and the club decided to give him a week off to avoid further injuries, so Chiesa will not take part in the warm-up match against Arsenal the day after tomorrow.
In addition, Vlahovic will not travel to London with the team, the Serbian striker returned to Continassa after the World Cup and has been suffering from groin pain in recent months, so he still needs rehabilitation training.
In addition, Bogba will not travel with the team to England and he is expected to return to training in a few weeks’ time. Allegri hopes Bogba will be included in the squad in late January and become a key player in February.
