Sissoko requires knee surgery

Juventus will be without Momo Sissoko for the next two months after it was confirmed he would require knee surgery.

The Mali international has been struggling for fitness throughout the campaign and the situation came to a head.

“The medical tests on Sissoko showed that surgery to clean up the cartilage in the left knee would be opportune,” read a statement.

“On Tuesday, therefore, Professor Jambou will perform the operation in Bordeaux, France.”

Former Liverpool midfielder Sissoko is likely to be out of action for around two months.

Considering he is expected to move on in the summer anyway, he may have played his last game for Juventus.
