Bad news from pre-season training at Juventus, as Vincenzo Iaquinta has sprained his right knee.
The striker spent much of last term on the treatment table with a series of injuries and was hoping to start on the right foot.
Instead, a note on the official club website confirmed he had “sprained his right knee.
“Tomorrow further tests will be conducted to evaluate his condition.”
It's another blow for Iaquinta, whose future at Juventus is far from secure.
The veteran and versatile forward has been linked with, among others, Napoli and Bologna.
