Juventus star Miralem Pjanic has been ruled out for up to a month due to a thigh injury he sustained in the warm-up before Juve’s 2-0 win over Olympiacos in the Champions League on Wednesday.
According to Bosnian doctor Reuf Karabeg,”We spoke to the Juventus doctor. Pjanic has a 2cm muscle tear above his knee and will have to rest for 3-4 weeks,”
Pjanic revealed in a statement:
“I am sorry to be injured at this important moment, ahead of the Belgium match.
“I will support Bosnia with all my heart and hope this situation can be another motive for my Bosnian team-mates.”
The torn muscle will force midfielder Pjanic who already has 75 caps, to miss fixtures against Belgium and Estonia in addition to Juventus games for the month of October.
