Juventus Reveal Chiellini's Injury Is Less Serious Than Initially Feared

Recent scans on the defender's thigh however have confirmed that the damage done is less serious than initially believed.

Giorgio ChielliniJuventus were dealt a severe blow following their impressive 2-1 victory away to Fiorentina at the weekend, with the news that their star defender Giorgio Chiellini may be forced to miss up to a month of football with what looked to be a serious thigh strain.

Recent scans on the defender's thigh however have confirmed that the damage done is less serious than initially believed, meaning that Chiellini could be available for selection this weekend.

 

The club released a statement on the injury on their official website that read: "This evening, Chiellini has undergone MRI scans that were undertaken by Professor Carlo Faletti, at the Fornaca di Sessant Clinic. There is no tear in the muscle in the back of his left leg."

The Italian international is certain to miss the Bianconeri's meeting with Fulham in the Europa League on Thursday, and may also sit out the Siena clash on Sunday, despite being in contention for a recall to the squad.

A return against the English outfit in the return leg at Craven Cottage on March 18 is the most likely outcome.
