Juve: Matuidi plays down injury

Juventus midfielder Blaise Matuidi has insisted that he will be ‘fine’ for next week’s Champions League quarter-final second leg against Ajax.

Matuidi’s calf pulled up in the latter stages of Juve’s 1-1 draw at Ajax on Wednesday, fuelling fears of a layoff for the Frenchman.

However, he told Sky Sport Italia after the game: “I’ll be fine, rest assured.”

The 32-year-old may not be risked for Saturday’s Serie A trip to SPAL in the meantime.
