Benedikt Howedes out until 2018

December 2, 2017

Benedikt Howedes is set to miss at least a month of action after Juventus confirmed the defender has a serious setback following his latest injury.

The German defender finally made his Juve debut, putting in a good shift in the Bianconeri’s 3-0 victory over Crotone, however he has since suffered a setback.

Juventus have since confirmed that Howedes has been diagnosed with a serious setback, a lesion to the right thigh muscle which “necessitates an extended stop with possible return not before the Christmas break – The timing will be better ascertained over the next few weeks.”

The centre-back has suffered a string of injuries since arriving in Turin and it’s looking unlikely that Juve will exercise their option on the player who turns 30 in February.

    Get him cheap, or send him back to Schalke. Too injury prone to risk a lot of money on.

    No point in hanging on to someone who is permanently injured.

    Such a shame, the guy has tremendous potential. One game he did play in was very classy. We need him to replace Chiellini in the long term. Howedes is actually what we need, the guys a proven winner.
