Barzagli to miss start of season after surgery
Question of the Day
TURIN, Italy (AP) - Juventus defender Andrea Barzagli will miss the start of the Serie A after surgery on his right heel.
The club says Barzagli underwent an operation on the heel bone on Tuesday, but did not require surgical treatment on his Achilles tendon.
Barzagli was operated on in Finland by Professor Sakari Orava, and will return to Italy on Wednesday.
Juventus says he will be out of action for approximately three months, missing the start of the season as Antonio Conte’s team aims for a fourth successive league title.
Despite the injury, Barzagli made 26 league appearances for Juventus. The 33-year-old also played in all three of Italy’s World Cup matches in Brazil.
