Internazionale defender Juan Jesus set to be in a cast for a month
Internazionale defender Juan Jesus will be in a cast for a month, following the knee ligament injury he suffered against Bologna.
The 22 year-old, who was signed from Internacional in January 2012, does not require an operation, but will not return until next season.
“It’s the first time I have suffered an injury like this,” he told Inter Channel. “But I am calm about it because I am working to get back to my best.
“Lazaros’ foul? It was he who came in over the top while I was trying to kick the ball. I tried to run it off but I decided to leave the field in order not to make it worse.
“I won’t be having an operation because it’s only collateral damage, so it will be able to recover on its own.
“I need to keep it in a cast for a month, then we will see what happens after that.”
