Juventus star Sami Khedira out for three months following knee surgery

Some injury sweat for the Italian champions.

Two absentees of their squad, as one of them is set for a longer layoff.

Germany international Sami Khedira is set to be absent for Juventus until March following successful surgery on his left knee. Juve will be without midfielder Sami Khedira for around three months after he underwent successful knee surgery on Wednesday, the Serie A club announced.

The Bianconeri had earlier said Khedira would travel to Augsburg for the arthroscopic cleaning procedure in his left knee after missing Sunday’s 2-2 draw against Sassuolo. They reported the operation was “perfectly successful” and Germany international Khedira could immediately begin rehabilitation.

The 32-year-old, who has made 17 appearances in all competitions for Maurizio Sarri’s team this season, is set to return in March. Khedira had the same surgery on his right knee at the end of last season. In addition, Wales international Aaron Ramsey has picked up a thigh injury which could keep him out of Juventus’ Serie A clash against Lazio on Saturday.

Ramsey is to be evaluated ahead of Saturday’s meeting with Lazio after sustaining a thigh issue. The Bianconeri revealed Ramsey was suffering with an injury at the end of Thursday’s training session.
