Juventus have received good news that midfielder Miralem Pjanic’s injury isn’t as serious as first believed.
Pjanic hobbled off during Bosnia-Herzegovina’s 3-0 defeat to Roberto Mancini’s Italy on Friday night with a muscle injury.
It was originally thought that Pjanic might be out for some time, however after being assessed at the J-Medical centre today, the club have confirmed that there is no muscle tear.
The Juve No 5 has fatigue in his right leg, the same problem that forced him off midway through Juve’s match against Lecce several weeks ago.
Pjanic will be ordered to rest by the Juve medical team, with a view to giving him some minutes on the pitch against Atalanta next Saturday.
The Bosnian has played in 15 games in all competitions for the Bianconeri this season, scoring three times.
