It is feared Juventus could lose Martin Caceres for anything from two to six months after his knee injury in the Trofeo TIM.
The Uruguayan defender slipped on the choppy turf at the Stadio San Nicola in Bari last night and badly sprained his left knee.
He was stretchered off and there were immediately concerns he might’ve damaged the collateral ligament.
More tests are needed, but already rumours are filtering through from the Bianconeri medical staff that they fear the worst.
If the ligament damage is confirmed, then Caceres could be out of action for anything from two to six months.
