Andrea Pirlo suffers knee ligament damage

Italian champions Juventus confirm that Andrea Pirlo has suffered knee ligament damage.

Juventus have confirmed that Italian midfielder Andrea Pirlo has suffered knee ligament damage.

The 34-year-old, who picked up the injury during his side's 1-0 win over Udinese at the weekend, is expected to miss the rest of the year with the injury.

"Andrea Pirlo, who picked up a knock not long after kick-off in yesterday's fixture between Juventus and Udinese, has undergone medical tests this afternoon," read a club statement.

"The examinations at Turin's Fornaca Clinic have revealed second-grade damage to the medial collateral ligament of his right knee."

Pirlo's Juve contract expires at the end of the season and the playmaker has been linked with a number of Premier League clubs.
