Juventus defender Giorgio Chiellini's muscular strain could see him miss their key game against Roma this weekend as club confirms he needs further tests...
The defender was replaced 16 minutes into Italy's 2-0 friendly win over Ukraine on Tuesday night in Kiev, and his condition at this stage is likely to be of concern to Juve coach Luigi Del Neri.
"I don't think I will be able to play on Sunday," a deluded Chiellini told ANSA after the match.
An extract of a statement on the club's official website reads:
"Giorgio Chiellini will undergo specialist tests neccessary to evaluate his condition."
Juventus were unable to give a prognosis on whether he will be available for the Roma game, which is a key fixture in the Bianconeri's bid to make it back into European competition next season. The Old Lady currently lie five points behind the Lupi in seventh position.
