TURIN, October 8, 2014 – The times, unfortunately for Martin Caceres, are confirmed: the Uruguayan will not return to the disposal of Massimiliano Allegri before one month. This at best. “These examinations have revealed a first-second degree tear of the semitendinosus muscle in the defender’s left thigh. He is expected to be out of action for approximately four weeks.” the diagnosis published on the website of his club after the exams of which the defender was submitted yesterday (who got literally stuck in the course of Juve-Roma in an advanced attempt to stop Gervinho). The problem is bad enough in itself, but acquires even greater resonance if contextualised in relation to the overall framework of Juventus defensive unit.

Already without Luca Marrone (to return to work after the break, and then to the game against Sassuolo), and Andrea Barzagli. In reference to the latter, the situation remains quite complicated after the call-up for Juventus-Udinese on 13 September (the defender remained on the bench), Barzagli has not been called again. In this connection Sunday always on Juventus site, the club had made clear: “The defender has been subjected to an investigation that showed the presence of a calcaneal bone suffering from stress … will continue with therapy and differentiated training for another month so he will be subjected to further investigations. “
