Alex Sandro and Khedira injury updates

Juventus have injury problems after the Coppa Italia Final, as Alex Sandro tore a medial collateral knee ligament and Sami Khedira has a potentially serious tendon issue.

The Bianconeri returned to Turin after last night’s defeat to Napoli in Rome and are now preparing for the first Serie A game back against Bologna on Monday.

“Diagnostic tests carried out at J-Medical this afternoon showed for Alex Sandro, a first degree lesion of the medial collateral ligament. Physiotherapy began immediately.

Juventus have injury problems after the Coppa Italia Final, as Alex Sandro tore a medial collateral knee ligament and Sami Khedira has a potentially serious tendon issue.

The Bianconeri returned to Turin after last night’s defeat to Napoli in Rome and are now preparing for the first Serie A game back against Bologna on Monday.

“Diagnostic tests carried out at J-Medical this afternoon showed for Alex Sandro, a first degree lesion of the medial collateral ligament. Physiotherapy began immediately.

“For Khedira, a partial injury of the tendon on the long adductor muscle of the right thigh. In the coming days he will undergo further investigations to define recovery times.

“Personalised work for Giorgio Chiellini and Gonzalo Higuain also continues. Training is scheduled for Saturday afternoon.”

Khedira was not even on the bench last night, as he suffered a muscular problem in training.

If this is a tear of the tendon rather than the adductor muscle itself, that could be the end of the season for the German international.

Sky Sport Italia suggest Alex Sandro's injury will require approximately three weeks on the sidelines.
