Juve blow as Sissoko out for season

Juventus midfielder Mohamed Sissoko will miss the rest of the season after ndergoing arthroscopic surgery to remove damaged cartilage in his left knee.

Sissoko, 26, has struggled with knee problems for several months but has nonetheless made 19 appearances for the Bianconeri this season.

A statement from Juventus read: "The operation was done in Bordeaux by Dr Jambou and Sissoko is expected to return in three months' time.''

Sissoko's absence is a further blow for Juve coach Luigi Del Neri, who will also be without midfielders Hasan Salihamidzic and Alberto Aquilani for Saturday's match against AC Milan.

Salihamidzic sustained a thigh problem in Tuesday's training session while Aquilani has yet to recover from a muscle injury.

Defender Fabio Grosso is also out for 10 days with a strain in his right thigh and striker Simone Pepe is suspended this weekend.

Juve have lost four of their last six league games and head into this weekend's showdown in seventh position in Serie A, 17 points behind league leaders Milan.
