Del Piero gets stitches

Juventus star Alessandro Del Piero needed eight stitches for a cut to his eyebrow after a boot in the face.

The captain came off the bench, but lasted only eight minutes in the 2-0 win over Cesena.

He was accidentally kicked in the face by Marco Rossi and was stretchered off the field bleeding heavily.

Reports from Turin suggest Del Piero was given eight stitches on his left eyebrow and taken to hospital for check-ups, which gave him the all-clear.
