Andrea Barzagli has dislocated his shoulder and requires a protective brace, confirmed Juventus.
The defender fell awkwardly on to his left arm and it dislocated his shoulder just five minutes into the 2-1 victory over Chievo at the Stadio Bentegodi.
“He was immediately taken to hospital where the injury was treated and the shoulder put in a protective brace,” read a club statement.
“Andrea’s condition will continue to be monitored in the coming days.”
It’s not clear how long Barzagli will be out for, but he’s bound to be ruled out of international duty when Italy take on Liechtenstein and Germany next week.
