Juventus Stalwart Suffers Small Setback in Practice

Danilo was expected to return from his thigh strain this coming weekend versus Fiorentina, but that won’t be the case. He felt some discomfort in training, and his comeback will be postponed by one or two games. Juventus will face Cagliari after the Viola. Then, there’ll be the final international break of the year, giving up ample time to recover fully, TuttoSport informs.

The defender talked to Mola about his arrival in Turin.

“I never revealed this, but I could have arrived in 2017 before moving to Manchester City. While I was talking with one of their executives, I asked them whether Alex Sandro would stay. A few teams were after him that summer. I wouldn’t have joined if he was bound to leave. He has always been like a brother to him. He’s my only true friend in football. Playing with him is something I can’t explain. He’s family, and he’s the godfather of my youngster kid.”

Our Take on Danilo

They should obviously be careful, and they have been good enough defensively without him even against daunting frontlines. Daniele Rugani has been solid, but backups tend to have an expiration date before they show why they aren’t starters. Moreover, his absence precludes them from testing and potentially turning to alternative schemes, as they have just one pure fullback, Andrea Cambiaso, if he’s unavailable.
