Pepe reveals operation plans

Juventus midfielder Simone Pepe has revealed that he may have to have an operation after injuring his quadricep.

The 29-year-old has played just one game for the Bianconeri this season having been plagued by a number of injury set-backs.

And the Italy international has admitted that he has been frustrated by his time on the sidelines this term.

“We are currently trying to solve some problems I have had,” he told Sky Sport Italia. “Luckily I have received the support of my teammates and the fans.

“I want to thank them because I wouldn't have been able to carry on without them.

“I have relapsed four times in my rehabilitation, so I think there will have to be a small operation.

“Hopefully, once that's done, I can return to playing as soon as possible.”
