Bonucci given all clear

Leonardo Bonucci did not suffer any serious knee injury in training this morning, Juventus have confirmed.

There were fears that the Italian international centre-back could be sidelined for some time after twisting his knee.

However, the player has now undergone a series of medical examinations which have eased the club's concerns.

Scans have shown no ligament or meniscus damage, meaning he suffered only a light sprain to his left knee.

Bonucci will thus spend the next few days resting before gradually being reintegrated into the squad.

The former Bari player does have time on his side as he is suspended for Juventus' home match against Parma next Thursday.
