Juventus have suffered a blow with the news striker Vincenzo Iaquinta will be out for at least two months as he must undergo knee surgery.
The Turin club announced today that tests on the 29-year-old's left knee have revealed damage to his meniscus.
"The tests done have indicated the need for the player to undergo surgery,'' a statement on the club's official website said. "The operation will be done tomorrow in Turin.''
Iaquinta sustained the injury during training on Saturday and was forced to sit out yesterday's 1-0 victory at Siena.
The Italy international, who has scored four goals in eight appearances for the Bianconeri this season, could be sidelined until next year.
