Shock in Juventus after confirming the absence of Di Maria with injury
Juventus will miss the services of its new Argentine star, Angel Di Maria, for at least ten days, as a result of his injury yesterday to the left thigh during the first stage of the local football league against Sassuolo (3-0), the club announced.
Juventus said on its official website today that the 34-year-old Argentine winger "underwent a radiological examination this morning, which revealed a slight injury to the adductor longus muscle of the left thigh," adding, "His condition will be evaluated again within ten days."
The former French player of Paris Saint-Germain made a wonderful first official match in the colors of Juventus on Monday, where he scored the first goal with a shot "on the fly" and passed the ball for the third goal of Serbian Dusan Vlahovic, who was also the owner of the second goal in the meeting.
But the Argentine winger was forced to leave the field about half an hour before the end of the match, after feeling pain in his left thigh.
Di Maria will at least move away from the next two matches for Juventus in the local league against Sampdoria (August 22) and Roma (August 27), at a time when local media talked about the possibility of his absence extending for a month.
Di Maria's injury is another severe blow to coach Massimiliano Allegri's team, who also lost the efforts of another French newcomer, returning to Turin again, Paul Pogba, who is expected to be absent for at least five weeks.
