Kwadwo Asamoah will miss up to four months of Juventus’ season, after undergoing knee surgery today.

The Bianconeri revealed on the club’s official website that the Ghanaian has gone under the knife in Barcelona today in a bid to clear up a knee problem, and will not return to the pitch for at least three months, with a four month lay-off possible.

“Kwadwo Asamoah was in Barcelona [today] to undergo arthroscopic surgery designed to fix torn cartilage in his left knee.” Juventus confirmed.

“Operated on by Dr. [Ramon] Cugat and accompanied by club doctor [Andrea] Causarano, the Ghanaian is expected to return to competitive action within three to four months.”

Also on the treatment table is on-loan Verona midfielder Romulo. The Brazilian will have surgery to correct an abductor problem, with medical staff from Verona reporting back to Bianconeri doctors.
