Chiellini injury not serious

There is good news for Juventus captain Giorgio Chiellini, as tests ruled out muscular lesions, so his injury is not serious.

The defender limped off during last night’s 2-0 Champions League victory away to Dynamo Kiev.

There had been concerns he might’ve pulled a hamstring or suffered a thigh strain.

However, a statement released this afternoon by the club confirms there were no muscular lesions.

It means his condition will be evaluated on a daily basis and he is expected to be out for 7-10 days.

Pirlo orchestrates a perfect Juve debut

Andrea Pirlo’s coaching career kicked off in practically perfect fashion and Vilizar Yakimov is already impressed by Il Maestro and his Juventus symphony.

A breath of fresh air. That’s how their Serie A opener against Sampdoria felt for those who support Juventus, as both fans and players desperately needed a change after the awkward reign of Maurizio Sarri.

From the very beginning of the game it almost seemed like the Bianconeri were just liberated after being held in a cage, as every single player in black and white was brimming with energy, desire and confidence. While those on the pitch performed to a very high level, much of the credit should be given to Andrea Pirlo, who made some bold choices.
