According to Sky Sport Italia, McKennie has been diagnosed with the fracture of the second and third metatarsal in his left foot.

This will mean a very long lay-off for the 23-year-old and it is entirely possible his season is already over.

Sky Sport Italia report the time out is going to be at least two months.

He has made 28 competitive appearances for the club this season between Serie A, the Champions League, Coppa Italia and Italian Supercup.

McKennie scored four goals.

It is a blow to the Bianconeri, who were already missing Paulo Dybala, Federico Chiesa, Daniele Rugani, Giorgio Chiellini and Federico Bernardeschi for this Champions League trip.

  1. And yet no card from the pathetic referee . that was a double legged sliding tackle that didn’t even touch the ball. moron ref

  2. Also there was a foul earlier on Dusan right before they scored the equalizer abs yet to hear a whistle from the ref!!!

  3. I feel sorry for him… he suffer so much in this ultradefensive tactic no where near the win. Get well soon Wes!

  4. Get well soon Weston.

    Rubentus were inspired to sign Zakaria!

    As long as Vlahovic stays injury free, they have a realistic chance of finishing top4.

  5. Not a Juve fan but I hope he recovers soon. I wouldn’t wish injury upon any player.

    To the clowns crying about fouls/cards, Rabiot should have gotten a red for the studs up tackle to the side of Samuel Chukwueze’s knee

  6. Not a juve fan, but the injuries to Chiesa and now McKennie are sad to see. Wish them a speedy recovery.

  7. @Brian

    Are you serious? It was a clean sliding tackle. Unfortunate for Wes but the tackle was legit and def not a free kick even
