Howedes: 'I'm out for a few weeks'

Benedikt Howedes sent a message to Juventus fans, disappointed that he will be out of action “for the next few weeks.”

The German international defender aggravated a previous muscular injury this week.

“I have been in Turin for three weeks and naturally, I expected a different start,” wrote Howedes on his social media accounts.

“After a right thigh problem, I was able to start training with the team this week and had great hopes of starting tonight’s Derby against Torino.

“Unfortunately, it went differently. In Thursday’s training session, I hurt the muscle that had already been torn, so I cannot play for the next few weeks.

“I am extremely disappointed. At the same time, I will do everything to repay the faith that my club put in me.

“Everyone welcomed me very cordially. Even if I don’t understand everything – despite my language studies – I am very pleased to be part of this ambitious squad.

“I want to give my contribution so that Juve will have success in every competition this season!”
