Kwadwo Asamoah’s hope of making a full return to action after recovering from a long injury spell has been dashed, as the midfielder has again been knocked out by another injury.
Asamoah, who is making a gradual return for the Italian champions, came on as a substitute for injured Roberto Pereyra on the 37th minute in Juventus’ win against Atalanta, but the Ghanaian star was himself stretchered off for a muscular injury which is likely to keep him out for the next three weeks.
“During the match, Pereyra suffered a muscular problem in his right thigh,” a statement on the Bianconeri’s official website confirmed.
“Diagnostic tests carried out this morning showed a second-degree injury to semimembranosus muscle, with the recovery time needed estimated to be 40 days.
“Asamoah also suffered a muscular problem, a first-degree injury to the biceps femoris of the left thigh, so the prognosis for recovery is 20 days.”
