Pepe suffers new injury

Juventus winger Simone Pepe has picked up another muscular injury, postponing his comeback.

The 30-year-old made only one Serie A appearance last season, playing 22 minutes in Juventus 0-0 Lazio in November 2012.

He had been on the road to recovery from a recurring thigh problem, but today the club announced he suffered another relapse.

Pepe has a lesion to the left thigh, close to the spot that underwent surgery in February, and will have to rest for at least 15-20 days.
