Maurizio Sarri won’t be happy to hear the news after Juventus players report from the international break as he is now facing some issues.
Juventus’ playmaker Miralem Pjanic engaged in Bosnia’s qualification match against Italy last night.
Pjanic suffered an injury late in the match which was already lost for his team.

This leaves Sarri without his first-choice midfielder. There are a lot of midfield options at Juve.
However, none of them fits Pjanic’s profile, as the Bosnian is creative and technically superior on the ball.
Bosnian Federation released a statement, saying:
“BiH national team players Miralem Pjanić and Luka Menalo will miss the team’s next match against Liechtenstein due to injuries.
“Pjanic has an adductor injury, while Menalo has an ankle injury.”
