New, comments

Ah, nuts.

It will likely be another three weeks until we hear any kind of update regarding the status of Federico Bernardeschi and his injured knee. That right there is a red flag, seeing as it’s going to take about a month to determine just how serious this injury could be.

But, even with Max Allegri saying that it will be three weeks until Bernardeschi can be re-examined by the club’s doctors, just how long he could be truly out for is still very much an uncertainty entering the final days of February.

La Gazzetta dello Sport has gone so far to suggest that Bernardeschi’s season could very well at risk if the the scans on his knee injury next month don’t show promising signs. Translation: If things don’t look so hot for Bernardeschi come his re-evaluation day at J Medical, then his injured knee could very well need surgery to repair things fully.

And with that, we are now worried even more than before.

Bernardeschi, who suffered his knee injury Juventus’ Derby della Mole win two Sundays ago, originally started the game on the bench but came on for another injured player in the win over Torino, striker Gonzalo Higuain. While Higuain is expected back in the next week or so, the timetable for Bernardeschi simply hinges on what the doctors say come the middle of March.

And now that it’s being reported that surgery and the possibility that his season could be over because of it, then the next couple of weeks become some of the most important Bernardeschi has had since he signed with Juventus this past summer.

In the meantime, we will count down the days until we hear about Bernardeschi’s status ... and pretty much try to enjoy what Fede does with all of his newfound free time.

I am finding this amusing for one single, solitary fact when you see a picture of Bernardeschi standing in the kitchen as he waits for his coffee to be made. Yup.

And good morning to you, too, Mr. Bernardeschi.
